Jonny Evans made his debut for United in the League Cup against Coventry in 2007. Four years later he was named captain of the side that had the opportunity to reach the semi-finals. However, following the 2-1 defeat, Evans has claimed that he would swap the captaincy for a win.
“Before the game I was delighted to be given the armband, but I’d happily take that away to have the victory instead,” he said. “It’s good that the manager plays the younger lads, but unfortunately we’ve not managed to get the result. My first game was in the Carling Cup and it didn’t turn out as well as we expected, but the lads have got to keep focused and work hard on their games.”
