Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has delighted fans by mocking rivals Manchester City following their Champions League defeat.
The blue side of the city suffered heartbreak as they lost the final 1-0 to Premier League opponents Chelsea, Kai Havertz slotting in the first half.
It means that manager Pep Guardiola has failed to secure Europe’s top prize for the Etihad Stadium side for a fifth season, despite millions being spent on the squad.
And Evra, who won the Champions League in 2008 with rivals United, had a brutal message for City following their latest disappointment in the competition.
Posting to his 7.5m Instagram followers, Evra shared an image of club legend Bobby Charlton examining ol’ Big Ears – which he won in 1968 against Benfica under Sir Matt Busby – with a team-mate.
The Frenchman has photo-shopped his face on top of the other team-mate, adding words over the top to represent speech.
“Sir Bobby, can you check for City’s name again,” Evra puts on with a response from Charlton of: “Nope, still not here Pat…”
Accompanying the edited image, the former defender writes: “I need it to ask Sir Bobby to check again! Good night everyone!”
And the United faithful were left in stitches at the 40-year-old for his social media antics.
“Manchester is blue, they said – lol,” one supporter said.
Another commented: “Yes, uncle Pat!”
While a third held nothing back, with: “Man city got no history – just an English team with oil money.”
And a fourth simply added: “Ideal post!”
United suffered their own European disappointment, though, as they were beaten by Villarreal on penalties in the Europa League final.
After conceding to Gerard Moreno’s strike after 29 minutes, Edinson Cavani got the Red Devils back on level terms 10 minutes into the second half but could not find a winner.
With the tie going all the way to penalties, it was goalkeeper David de Gea who missed the only penalty of the shootout to hand the trophy to Unai Emery 11-10.
