Evans has high expectations

first_imgJonny Evans has claimed his third Premier League title medal means nothing compared to Ryan Giggs’ 13th. Press Association The Northern Ireland defender has now equalled John Terry and Frank Lampard for number of championships won, which underlines what a winning machine Manchester United became under Sir Alex Ferguson. It means the examples Evans has to follow mainly come from within the Old Trafford dressing room. And, in that regard, the 25-year-old feels he comes up well short, saying: “It is my third Premier League medal but it is insignificant compared to what some of the other lads have achieved.” center_img He added: “There are guys in there on five and six. Ryan has 13. That is the driving force here. People say I have won three. “But I want to be up there with the best of them and I am sure there are a lot more in the squad who feel like that.” The attitude of those senior figures will be vital in this summer’s transition from the Ferguson era to that of David Moyes. For United need to maintain the same drive and determination even though they are no longer hearing the same voice that has cajoled so many inspired performances out of them and, since Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit in 2009, been the major difference between the Red Devils and the rest. “I have been a Manchester United fan all my life and I have never known another manager at the club,” said Evans. “I got emotional when Gary Neville left the club so you can imagine what it is like now.” last_img read more
