Evans earns the plaudits from Man Utd boss Ferguson

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is fulsome in his praise for how Jonny Evans has contributed to the Reds cause this campaign. The 24 year old Northern Ireland international has featured more often in central defence for United than any other player in this injury-ravaged campaign.

"He's playing regularly and I think that helps," said Ferguson.

"He is still a young player of course and when they get runs of games it helps with their consistency. His partnership with Rio has been very good."

In fact, after Nemanja Vidic was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign with a knee injury, Ferguson believes Ferdinand has been a major influence on Evans.

"A lot of it has to do with Rio actually because he's really helped Jonny," said Ferguson.

"Jonny's always had terrific ability and it's good to see he's in consistent form."
