“The toughest one? It is not the toughest one, but the most annoying one was James Milner,” Evra said in a Q&A with Man United’s official website.

“People always expect me to say another one but James Milner. The was because he was always defending more than myself.

“I am someone, I am an defender, so he frustrated me so much because he was following me everywhere.

“Even if I was going to the toilet, he was going to follow me. I would say the most annoying is James Milner.”

Evra won the UEFA League with Man United in 2008, as well as five Premier League titles in an eight-year spell with over 350 appearances for the Red Devils.
