Manchester United star unsure of part in manager's plans

Published Add your comment

Manchester United's Jonny Evans concedes he is unsure about his long-term future in the centre of the club's defence despite being afforded a start in each of the last four matches.

The Northern Ireland international has been the only mainstay over the past month with David Moyes opting to pair Evans with a different partner in all four of the most recent matches played by the Premier League champions.

Nemanja Vidic joined Evans at centre-back for the defeat to Newcastle at Old Trafford, Rio Ferdinand played against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, Phil Jones was required in the resounding defeat of Aston Villa, while Chris Smalling played against Stoke on Wednesday.

Despite this apparent show of faith, however, Evans admits he has not been informed by the manager if he will continue to retain a starting berth, or will be ousted once all options are available once again.

"I haven’t been given that feeling by the manager," Evans told reporters when asked if he had been given an indication of Moyes' plans.

"It’s only four games in a row I’ve played now and there have been some injuries. It’s been the same scenario over the past couple of seasons. I’ve had a run of games then got injured.

"You can’t look too far ahead. You have just got to keep playing as well as you can play, hopefully every remains injury-free, and then you give the manager a selection dilemma."
