Evra: I played with chicken in my boot for four months

The one-time Red Devils defender was shown alternative uses for poultry during his time in Ligue 1

Former Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra has claimed that he played with chicken in his boot for four months while at Monaco.

The French defender had sustained an injury in an international fixture, but then-manager Didier Deschamps needed him to play through the pain and club doctors suggested that putting chicken into his boot would help.

Evra’s chicken-assisted performances were so impressive that Manchester United eventually came calling and brought him from the Ligue 1 side to the Premier League, where he won five league titles, three League Cups and a Champions League.
