This time, the retired footballer revealed that he regretted playing for the French national team. Today, he claims, his decision would be different.

– If I could turn back time, I would choose to play for the country I was born in, Senegal. I was born in Dakar but grew up in France Evra explained.

– One of the painful lessons I learned from my choice is that if you play well and win, they call you French. When a team quits, it is listed as Senegalese – the former Manchester United player remarked bitterly.

– We must pass on to young generations that they can be successful in playing for their home countries – summed up the 41-year-old.
