Former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has revealed one particular side of the club’s former manager Sir Alex Ferguson that many people may not have known about before. The defender was signed for United by Sir Alex during the legendary manager’s historic reign at Old Trafford and he was part of the success story that the club’s former Scottish manager wrote at the club.



Sir Alex is considered to be one of the greatest managers of all-time in the world of football for his achievements during his managerial career at Manchester United and there is enough reason to believe those claims, especially given the fact that he singlehandedly took the club to greater heights.

Jonny Evans joined Manchester United as a teenager in 2004 and he went on to make his first team debut two years later. The Northern Ireland player didn’t break into the Manchester United squad until the 2008/09 campaign after he had spent some time at clubs like Royal Antwerp FC of Belgium and English team Sunderland on loan. Jonny Evans was with the Manchester United first team for eight seasons before he left the club for West Brom in 2015. He scored seven times in 198 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions and his time at Old Trafford yielded three Premier League titles plus two League Cup titles.
