United - Evans Missed Chance!

United - Evans Missed Chance!

Reflecting on last season, our Irish international defender, Jonny Evans has rued a missed opportunity.

With the United defence decimated, at times, by injury and with Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher having to fill in on one occasion, Evans sees it as a missed opportunity to establish himself, on a permanent basis, as one of our centre backs.

Speaking to the media, this is what Jonny had to say,

"It was so frustrating because I picked up a few niggling injuries."

"It was annoying that with players like Rio Ferdinand and Nemnja Vidic out injured as well; there were chances to get in and get a few games under your belt."

"There were windows of opportunities I couldn`t take because I was sidelined."


Despite the missed opportunity, Jonny has set himself a milestone, on the back of his new four deal he recently put pen to paper, a deal that will see him stay at the club and try to make that crucial breakthrough he yearns for, with Jonny commenting,

"By the end of it, I`d like to be one of the first names on the team sheet."

Jonny will be twenty-six at the end of his new contract and we`d hope that if the breakthrough is coming it most certainly will have happened by then!

If he is first choice when Rio or Vidic is injured - I would expect him to play more games in total than either of them.

He has looked comfortable more often than not, I do hope he gets more games than Rio this season.
