On the eve of the reception of Montpellier on Friday at 8:45 pm at the Orange Vélodrome as part of the 22nd day of Ligue 1 (2016-17), OM trained for the last time at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus center on Thursday afternoon.
At 5:30 pm, the players of Rudi Garcia, among them Patrice Evra, went out on the ground of the «bas» under a deluge of rain. In 2 minutes, everyone was soaked.
The new left-back of the OM spent all the warm-up alongside Rod Fanni and Lassana Diarra, with a smile.
Once the warm-up was over and the ball was between his feet, Patrice Evra's face was engulfed in great concentration. In spite of the time, the neo-Olympian immediately put himself in the rhythm, being available and aggressively holding onto the ball.
He remained so during the tactical warm-up and exercises on stopped kicks.
An hour after the start of the session, the coach stopped training because the terrain was rendered impracticable by the rain. Nevertheless, Patrice Evra overcame some lengths under the direction of Paolo Rongoni before returning to the locker room.
