Manchester United defender Jonny Evans reckons he has one more season to prove he is good enough to hold down a regular spot in the team. The Northern Irish international admits his form has been patchy since he returned to Old Trafford from a loan spell at Sunderland in 2008.
But the 23-year-old is determined to seize his chance and reckons he is playing with a new found confidence this term. He said, ‘Of the three seasons since I came back from Sunderland, the last one was my most difficult. I didn’t hit the form I wanted, I went away and thought maybe I have another year, if I had another season like that I am sure the manager wouldn’t want me around. I wasn’t playing consistently to a good enough standard for Manchester United so I have gone back to basics and worked hard’.
Evans has started two of United’s first three Premier League games this season despite the fact Rio Ferdinand was fit for action against Arsenal and with the club set to visit Bolton this weekend – Evans will be hoping to keep his place in the team. The latest news can be found at www.manutd.com.
