Fergie expecting long service from Evans

Published Add your comment

On the day Sir Alex Ferguson refuted speculation Paul Scholes had decided to quit and insisted Ryan Giggs could extend his career for two more years, the Manchester United manager said he expects Jonny Evans to be at Old Trafford for another 10.

Evans has gradually emerged as one of United's defensive linchpins, stepping in for both Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic during the pair's many injury absences over the past four seasons.

The Northern Irishman's consistency has been rewarded with a four-year contract extension that will keep him at United until June 2016. And Ferguson expects him to be around for a lot longer. "Jonny has risen through the ranks to become an integral part of the first team squad," said the United boss.
