France International and former Manchester United defender, Patrice Evra recently shared a flashback on what happened the day he met Luis Suarez in the streets of Manchester after Suarez racially abused him.
The pair clashed way back in 2011 and the Uruguayan was subsequently found guilty and banned for eight games by the Football Association.
Now Evra in an interview on the The Diary of a CEO Podcast, cited by MARCA has lifted the lid on the moment that they almost came face to face again on the streets of Manchester.
“One day I was walking in Manchester in Deansgate and my brother said: ‘It’s Luis Suarez over there’. I was with two of my brothers,” he said .
“I looked at him and I was like ‘that’s it, this is the moment’.
“And he walked, and behind him I saw his kids and his wife. I turned my back. I was like ‘if you do something to him you can’t do this in front of his family’.
“So I don’t regret it because I think it would have ended up bad. I did nothing that day.” Evra added.
The racism flashpoint between Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra remains one of the most unsavoury moments in Premier League history.
