    Patrice Evra extends his Juventus adventure for an additional year - with an option for a second - until at least 30 June 2017

    Patrice Evra has today renewed his Juventus contract for an additional year - with an option for a second - keeping him at the Turin club until at least 30 June 2017. 

    Evra arrived at Juventus in the summer of 2014 on the back of a trophy-laden eight-and-a-half years at Manchester United, where he won five English Premier League titles, three League Cups and the Champions League.

    Back then, the Old Lady knew she was recruiting a natural-born winner, someone who matched her own philosophy and unbridled ambition when it comes to lifting titles and the marriage has proved an immensely happy one.

    The left back has continued his longstanding habit of picking up silverware, helping Juve to an historic second domestic league and cup double in consecutive seasons in addition to last year’s Italian Super Cup. 

    I won everything in Manchester but now that I am starting again with Juventus, I've achieved nothing yet. I'm here to give everything to the team because I enjoy being successful and Juve will help me to continue winning trophies.

    Patrice Evra 30/07/2014

    His countless experience on football’s biggest of stages has been an invaluable element in the Bianconeri’s overall development into one of the major forces in the European game.

    His strength of character, clearly evident at the best of times, shone through brilliantly during the side’s lowest ebb of the campaign following October’s defeat to Sassuolo, when his and Gianluigi Buffon’s powerful post-match words helped to galvanise the group and instigate the record-breaking run of 85 points out of a possible 90 to seal a Scudetto that many people outside the club had said was beyond them.

    As well as forming part of a formidable defensive unit, which conceded a league low 20 goals in 2015/16 en route to the club’s history-making fifth successive league title, the 35-year-old also impressed in his own right last term, making considerably more tackles than the average full-back in Serie A (1.54 per game vs. 1.26).

    Meanwhile, the Frenchman has also posed a consistent threat going forwards, again posting figures far above the average for his position in Italy’s top flight, whether in terms of creating goalscoring opportunities (1 vs. 0.41), delivering crosses (2.54 vs. 1.29), completing passes (34.85 vs. 30.53) or fashioning shots on target (0.23 vs. 0.11).

    In addition to his three assists, Evra has also chipped in with a pair of headed goals against Empoli and Sampdoria respectively.

    With two successful seasons for the Bianconeri already under his belt, Evra, who is involved at this summer’s European Championships with France, will continue to call upon his boundless supplies of big-match experience and savvy to help the club climb to new heights in the next two campaigns.
