Evans tells Man Utd pals: I'm innocent

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has reportedly told teammates he's innocent.

The Sun says Evans insisted "I didn't do it" after he was accused of rape.

The 19-year-old Northern Ireland international protested his innocence in a series of calls to close friends.

He rang round after a girl accused him of raping her at the club's Christmas party.

The player was arrested after presenting himself to cops on Tuesday.

A pal said last night: "Jonny is genuinely bemused and astonished by the events of the last 48 hours. He is determined to clear his name as quickly as possible."
