Man Utd defender Evans: Ferdinand has calming influence

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans enjoys playing alongside Rio Ferdinand.

The pair have formed a formidable defensive pairing since the turn of the year.

"I think it's the calmness he brings to the team… he never gets flustered. As a centre-back, if you're running around the pitch panicking, it sends a bad message to the team, so that composure is vital, and it's something I've tried to apply to my game," Evans told manutd.com.
