Former Manchester United star, Patrice Evra has said that the club’s summer signing Tyrell Malacia has ‘disappeared’ after just a few games.
The Dutch defender, who joined the Red Devils over the summer, was compared to Evra himself and other top defenders in world football.
The 23-year-old was one of the bright starters for Erik ten Hag’s side this season but has since lost his place to the more established Luke Shaw.
Malacia moved to Old Trafford in a £15m deal from Ajax last summer and immediately became a major part of Erik ten Hag’s side.
“Manchester United face Aston Villa again in the cup”’ Evra told Betfair.
“I don’t know if he’ll play some young players, or if he’s going to play Tyrell Malacia because he’s just disappeared.
“Everyone was excited about him, people were saying he is the new Patrice Evra” the former France international said, insisting that young players must be allowed to show a level of consistency before being compared to legends.
‘A player plays three or four games and people are calling him the best, the new Evra, the new Zidane, the new Ronaldo, the new Messi.”
