However, the pair didn’t always get along and Evra revealed their falling out was so bad it even led Fergie to switch Vidic’s central partner Rio Ferdinand to the left side of the defense so that they didn’t are not nearby.

Speaking at a recent event for a United partner, Evra explained: “We fought – me and him – and didn’t speak for three months.

The couple now share an “excellent relationship”

Evra said he and Vidic have finally reconciled – much to the relief of their teammates – and now share a “very good relationship” after their illustrious success at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman continued: “It was like that for three months until after a game I remembered he came to me in the dressing room and gave me a high-five.

“Everyone was like ‘finally’ because we were best friends together, Vida and I. We have a deep history together.

“So we fought together. That’s why I have a lot of respect for Vida, ”continued Evra.

“I love him so much. We struggled but we were really real, me and him.

“If we did something wrong we would argue but, in the same way, it was a great relationship.”
