Jonny Evans has said that he wants to continue playing for Manchester United for the remaining part of his career.
Evans’ contract has recently been extended by the United management for the next four years.
Evans had joined Manchester United in 2004. His age was only 16 years at that time. He featured for the youth team of United for a couple of years. He played his first match for the senior team of United in September 2007 against Coventry City.
Evans has featured for Manchester United in 92 matches so far. He has now become the first choice centre back for Sir Alex Ferguson. He has been in fine form in the ongoing season and has put up quite a few match winning performances.
When asked about the extension of his contract, Evans said, “I am delighted about it. I don’t want to leave Manchester United ever in my career. Playing for Manchester United was my goal during my childhood days. I achieved that goal and now, I want to be a part of Manchester United till the end of my career.”
In one of his recent interviews, Sir Alex Ferguson had hailed Evans and had said that Evans has improved a lot in the last two years. Ferguson had also said that Evans might be the future Manchester United captain. When asked about that, Evans said, “It’s good that the manager rates me so highly. But, leading the team is not something that I am looking forward to at the moment. We have got a great leader in the form of Nemanja Vidic and in his absence; Patrice Evra is also leading the team well. I am pretty happy playing under the captaincy of senior players at this point of time.”
