Former Manchester United left back Patrice Evra announced his retirement from soccer on Monday, bringing a trophy-laden 20-year career to an end.
Evra played for United between 2006 and 2014 and won nine major trophies, including five Premier League titles and the Champions League. He made more than 700 club appearances in total and also earned 81 caps with the France national team.
The 38-year-old also won two Serie A titles with Juventus after leaving United and said he will now move into coaching.
"My playing career is officially over," Evra said in an interview to Gazzetta dello Sport. "I started training for the UEFA B Coaching License in 2013, now I want to finish it and then go on to get the UEFA A license.
"In a year and a half, if everything goes well, I'll be ready to lead a team."
