Juventus defender Patrice Evra is one of the most interesting footballers in an age where it’s easy to shy away from publicity.
Many players keep a low profile when not on the pitch, but Evra’s passion for the game is brilliant, and this video proves it.
When a friend informed him that Juventus have signed Gonzalo Higuain in a whopping £75.3m deal, the Frenchman explodes into his version of the ‘running man’ dance that so many players have been attempting.

Now then, I’m not sure Evra’s dancing is as good as his defending, but it’s safe to say the former Manchester United man is pleased about his club’s new arrival.
Higuain is coming off the back of a record breaking season, where he scored 36 goals and broke a 50 year old scoring record in the process.
He was linked with Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger pulling out because of the astronomical release clause, but Juventus were willing to cough up the cash.
Higuain becomes the third most expensive player in history, and the most expensive domestic transfer ever – eclipsing Raheem Sterling’s £49m move from Liverpool to Manchester City.
No pressure then.
