Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra could not resist mocking rivals Manchester City after they were beaten by Chelsea in Saturday night’s Champions League final.

Pep Guardiola’s side had enjoyed a dominant season domestically, winning both the Carabao Cup and the Premier League, and were aiming to secure a famous treble and their first ever European Cup.

But City came unstuck in Porto, with Kai Havertz rounding Ederson in the first half to net the only goal of the game as Chelsea secured a 1-0 victory and European glory.

Although United have enjoyed a number of fallow years in the trophy department – particularly relative to City – the one thing they still have over their rivals is their collection of Champions League wins.

And Evra was just as delighted as every other United fan that City are still yet to win the competition, trolling his old rivals on social media after the game.

The former left-back uploaded a picture to Instagram with his face photoshopped onto an image with Sir Bobby Charlton, asking the United legend: ‘Sir Bobby can you check for City’s name again?!’

To which he replied, ‘Nope, still not here Pat’, which was followed by the Frenchman’s customary, ‘I love this game’ catchphrase.

He also wrote on the caption: ‘I need to ask Sir Bobby to check again!! Good night everyone.’

Speaking about the defeat, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola told BT Sport afterwards: ‘Exceptional season for us. It’s an honour to be here. Today we are sad, but in time we will analyse what an exceptional season it was for us.

‘It was a tough game. We had almost first clear chances, they missed one with Timo Werner and in the second half with Christian Pulisic.

‘And in the second half we were brilliant, we were brave, we could not convert the goals because they defended so strong. They’re so fast in the counter-attack.

‘We didn’t allow them to make the process to play, the players were exceptional, all of them, they all tried. We will come back [to the final] maybe one day again.’
