Jonny Evans didn’t expect news

Jonny EvansManchester United defender Jonny Evans has revealed he never expected to hear the news Sir Alex Ferguson was set to retire.

The Northern Ireland international has become more of a key figure under the Scot this season, making 22 appearances and grabbing three goals.

Reports suggested that the players learned of Ferguson’s retirement at a golf day, 24 hours before it was announced to the public.

However Evans revealed that this was not the case and the players were called into a meeting with the 71-year-old, who broke the news personally.

Evans said: “A lot was said about rumours flying around during our golf day but it wasn’t really like that.

“We came in the next day, a meeting was called and the manager told us he was retiring.

“It was still a shock because no one saw it coming.”
