Patrice Evra: ‘I’ve been to Nigeria but Ghana gave me best welcome’

He claims that after visiting Senegal and Nigeria, the reception he received in Ghana was still unparalleled.

On Monday night, the former left-back arrived in Ghana as part of his tour of the continent to support his new book.

The 41-year-old former international for France has been on a book tour to promote his autobiography, “I Love This Game.”

Television personality Nana Aba Anamoah and a few of his followers met Evra at the airport, and the former footballer expressed his gratitude for the gracious welcome.

He also mentioned how eager he was to try the well-known Ghana Jollof after hearing so much about it.

It’s absurd. “I didn’t anticipate such a loving response from the entire Ghanaian population,” exultant Evra added.

“I’ve never been to Ghana, and I’ll always remember that. This game is great. The love is already there. The best greeting, in my opinion—I’ve gone to Senegal and Nigeria. The Ghana jollof is the next dish to try.

Due to the friendly rivalry between Ghana and Nigeria, internet users in both nations have been making fun of Evra’s comments.

Both teams split the victory in Abuja when Thomas Partey’s first-half goal was cancelled out by Super Eagles captain William Troost-penalty. Ekong’s

The Black Stars’ qualifying on the strength of away goals was confirmed by the outcome after the first leg finished in a scoreless draw at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

The Black Galaxies also defeated Nigeria’s regional squad earlier in September to earn a spot in the CHAN competition in 2023.
