Manchester United legend Patrice Evra took to social media to taunt Manchester City and former rock band Oasis after the Red Devils’ 2-1 win in the derby.
Manchester United hosted Manchester City at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday 14 January. After losing 6-3 at Etihad Stadium earlier this season, they went into the game to get revenge on their neighbors.
After a scoreless first half, the Cityzens took the lead on the hour through Jack Grealish. However, goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford within just four minutes gave the hosts the three points.
Saturday’s win brought the Red Devils just a point behind Manchester City in the Premier League table. It is worth noting that it was also the first win in four games against Pep Guardiola’s side.
The result convinced many Manchester United fans that the club are on the way up again under Erik ten Hag. Evra, who plied his trade at Old Trafford between 2006 and 2014, was among those who couldn’t contain their excitement.
Evra took the opportunity to troll Cityzens and Oasis stars Noel Gallagher and Liam Gallagher. He posted a video of himself wearing a wig mocking the former rock band and singing a rewritten version of their song “Don’t Look Back in Anger” on his social media. The former Manchester United left-back can be heard:
“Don’t look back angrily…You’ll never shut my mouth…Soo City can wait…You know it’s too late, we’re on fire again…Your soul is slipping away.” .. But don’t look back angrily… I heard you say.
Manchester United great Evra also sent a personal message to Manchester City fans Noel and Liam
After finishing the song, which he dubbed the Evrasis remix, the Frenchman sent the Gallagher brothers a personal message. He explained that the parody was his belated Christmas present to the Oasis stars. He said:
“Liam, if your brother Noel doesn’t know what Noel means in French, tell him. Joyeux Noel [transl. Merry Christmas]. Sorry, that was my belated Christmas present just for you. I mean Evrasis. I love this day.”
This isn’t the first time Evra has attacked the Gallagher brothers, particularly Liam, who is notoriously vocal, on social media. He notably poked fun at the Oasis stars when Manchester City lost to Chelsea in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final.
