Patrice Evra has mocked his former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo about his rumoured sheep problem at his mansion.

Ronaldo, who returned to play for United last Saturday, apparently moved homes recently due to the animal noises he could hear. Now ex-France international Evra has taken to Instagram to poke fun at the 36-year-old.

He uploaded a video of himself whistling at sheep in a boat and made sure Ronaldo knew it was for him in the caption.

Evra wrote: “Don’t worry bro @cristiano I’m moving my sheep far away from your [house emoji] shepherd mister #ilovethisgame can do everything,”

The video has been watched over 850,000 times and the likes of Jamie Carragher and Robbie Keane left laughing emojis in the comments.

Reports emerged recently the Portuguese ace, who has scored in both of the United games he has featured in since his return, was bothered by the bleating of the sheep and so moved.
