United star Evra hungry for Quintuple - and getting one over on Mourinho
10 March 2009 10:27
Patrice Evra says his Manchester United team-mates are hungry to become legends by claiming an unprecedented Quintuple.
And the France left back believes United's defensive line gives them the confidence to add the Champions League, Barclays Premier League and FA Cup to their Club World Cup and Carling Cup haul.
'We really feel that people cannot score against us, be it home or away,' the 27-year-old told the Daily Star.
'It makes us feel incredibly confident. We know we can win by scoring a single goal because we are able to hold on to a result. If one of our defenders is voted Footballer of the Year, it will not be a surprise.
Evra cited the goalless draw at Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final as their best game in Europe last season and proof of their solid back line.
And despite ending that season with the league and European double, he insists United are determined not to rest on their laurels.
'We want to win every game and if we have that spirit we can go to the end of our dream,' said Evra.
'Winning these five trophies would be the stuff of legend. We are hungry for it.'
Evra is hoping to get one over on Jose Mourinho as United face Inter Milan at Old Trafford in the last 16 second leg on Wednesday, having drawn 0-0 at the San Siro.
The defender was part of Monaco's side in 2004 that were defeated in the Champions League final by Mourinho's Porto.
'It's clear. Mourinho is the kind of coach that everyone wants to beat,' he said. 'I lost a Champions League final against him with Monaco, but I turned that around with United when I won my first league title here. That was a beautiful victory.
'I don't talk about revenge, but I really want to beat him again.'
