Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has admitted he may have been slightly too honest in proclaiming at the start of the season that he would be heading for the Old Trafford exit door if he did not improve.

After making an excellent start to his United career, Evans' performances dipped last term. The £17million arrival of Phil Jones provided competition and there were doubts over the Northern Ireland international's future. But Evans has responded to the challenge and - until last weekend's setback against Everton - Nemanja Vidic's absence had hardly been noticed.

The 24-year-old is delighted with his form, and concedes the comments he made during a pre-season interview in Boston might have gone slightly too far. He said: "Maybe I was too honest. Maybe I shouldn't have said that. It was an honest opinion of myself, I guess."
