Manchester United legend Patrice Evra savagely trolled Manchester City after they lost the Champions League final to Chelsea on Saturday.

Kai Havertz scored the only goal for Thomas Tuchel's side as they beat City for the third time this season, and Evra, who has previously won the Champions League with United, took great pleasure in seeing his old rivals slip up on the big stage.

He posted on Instagram: "I need it to ask Sir Bobby to check again !!! Good night everyone #ilovethisgame #positive4evra #manchesterunited @championsleague #savage"

He included a picture of 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.

Speaking about the defeat, 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."
