Despite rumours linking him with a move away from the club, particularly after the arrival of defender Phil Jones, Jonny Evans has claimed he up for the challenge of working for his place in the team.
“I have always thought that being at a club like Manchester United, if you can’t accept a challenge of someone wanting your spot, you don’t deserve to be here,” he said. “That is what Manchester United is all about. You are constantly being tested. It is down to you, whether you are good enough, or whether you are putting the effort in to play for the first team.”
