Patrice Evra Dressed Up As Santa, Rides Rudolph, and Went For A Swim in a “absolutely berserk” Christmas video that got fans amazed.
The former defender for Manchester United is constantly in the mood to celebrate. Therefore, on Christmas Day, he engaged in his normal antics.
Evra, 41, uploaded a video of himself sitting on a pier above water while dressed like a Santa on a reindeer.
Where the Frenchman shot the video is unknown, but he was dancing like a real celebrant.
Then, in typical Evra form, he did something completely insane. The former left-back scaled the rope railing to get to Rudolph, then hurled them both into the water for a brief dip.
Many of his users on Twitter swamped the post with insightful comments.
One fan said: “This is absolutely beserk.”
Another one wrote: “Evra is a whole vibe….. I love this game.”
Finally, a user commented: “The only happy retired footballer. Man is just having fun. Merry Christmas Uncle Pat.”
The rest of the sporting world observed Christmas in more traditional ways, with many celebrities posting photographs of their families opening gifts and posing in front of trees and presents.
Tyson Fury, Lionel Messi, Alisson Becker, and Kylian Mbappe were among those who took advantage of the season to showcase their families.
The Premier League will resume play on Boxing Day, giving football fans their fix after a six-week sabbatical.
Patrice Latyr Evra, a former professional player and current French football coach, was born on May 15, 1981.
He started out as a forward but mostly played left back. Evra led both Manchester United and the France squad as their captain.
Evra’s boss Sir Alex Ferguson lauded him for his leadership and called him one of Europe’s top left-backs.
Evra, the son of a diplomat, was born in Senegal and immigrated to Europe at the age of one. Initially, Evra played for the Italian team Marsala.
He joined Monza the next season, and then came back to France to play for Nice, where he was converted into a full-back.
He joined Monaco in 2002 and was a member of the squad that won the UEFA Champions League in 2004.
Evra’s success with Monaco led to a transfer to Manchester United in January 2006, where he went on to win a number of trophies, including five Premier League championships and a UEFA Champions League.
He signed on with Italian club Juventus in 2014 before moving to Marseille in January 2017. However, he was discharged from Marseille in November 2017 after receiving a seven-month suspension from UEFA competition for kicking a supporter during a UEFA Europa League match.
Evra ended his career as a professional football player in July 2019 after signing a brief contract with West Ham United in February 2018.
He competed for France in five major international competitions: the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups, the 2008, 2012, and 2016 UEFA European Championships, where he won a runners-up medal.
Raymond Domenech, the manager of the national team, elected Evra captain before the 2010 World Cup.
He played in two group matches at the tournament, amidst France’s dismal performance.
After leading players to agitate against the France FA, Evra was given a five-match suspension from national team action.
He rejoined the team and helped France reach the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil under Didier Deschamps.
