Wrexham goalkeeper, Ben Foster has come out to hail Jonny Evans as a Rolls Royce defender. He recently backed him for a first-team role at Manchester United next season, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, Jonny Evans was quite good in the friendly game vs Wrexham early this morning, despite not playing active football for months last season.
Ben added that the Irish defender is definitely one of the best CBs he has ever played football with.
His words, “It’s such a huge gap, honestly, to bridge that gap from the U23s to the first team,”
“Nowadays, it’s not even possible. United have the whole word to choose from. If they’re struggling in a position, they can go out and spent £40m-£50m – it’s just the way it goes.”
“For me, Jonny Evans was the guy today. I love him. He’s a Rolls Royce, honestly. For him to step on the pitch, he hasn’t played football for two, three or four months. He went out there tonight and was the most comfortable defender. He’s one of the best defenders I have ever played with, Jonny Evans, honestly. I know he would do a job, seriously. All our (Wrexham) lads were saying that he could slot into that (United) first-team easily. He’s exactly the type of defender you need. Someone who is happy receives the ball, take a touch, nice and calm and composed and lay it off.”
