TURIN, October 15- Juventus defender Patrice Evra says he is ‘still annoyed’ about the way he left Manchester United, but insists he does not regret moving to Italy.

Despite penning a new-one year contract two months earlier, Evra departed Old Trafford for the Juventus Stadium in 2014 and helped the Bianconeri to the Serie A and Coppa Italia double, as well as reaching the Champions League final.

The veteran Frenchman admits he was not pleased as to how his move materialised, but believes the switch to the Turin outfit was the right decision.

“It’s still hard to talk about my exit,” Evra told French broadcaster RMC. “But one day, when my career is over, I’ll be able to speak more openly about it.

“I came to Turin above all for my family because at Manchester they had inserted a clause in our agreement which changed the situation considerably. It really annoyed me.

“But I don’t regret this move, which in the end has proven to be more than positive.”
