Jordan Amavi has admitted that he misses his mentor Patrice Evra at Marseille following his controversial sacking in November

The former Manchester United and Juventus star had his contract with the Ligue 1 club terminated in November last year after he had an altercation with a fan during a Europa League encounter.

Before Evra was released from Marseille, he had acted as a mentor for Amavi and the full-back has now admitted that he misses the competition and the experience that the veteran defender used to give him at the club.

“Competition means you have to outperform yourself”, Amavi told French daily L’Equipe (via Inside Futbol).

Chelsea loanee wants to stay in the Ligue 1

Victorien Angban and Metz have just booked their ticket to play in the French top-flight starting next season, and he wants to stay.

“But yes, I miss him because he’s a good person, he has the soul of a leader and had the experience that was good for us.

“He told me to listen to Paolo Rongoni because he would take me to the next level.”

The former Manchester United man has made three appearances for West Ham since returning to England in the winter.
