Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is unhappy with people forgetting about Jonny Evans.

Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are being tipped to succeed Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic at the heart of United's defence.

But Ferdinand told manutd.com: "You can't discount Jonny Evans either. It's a bit out of order that people have been saying it's definitely going to be Chris and Phil. Jonny's also one of the most talented central defenders in Great Britain. I'm sure all three of them will be battling it out in the future to play in the centre of defence.

"It's great that this club has players in all positions that will be the future of this club. Whether they'll be as good as me and Vida, only time will tell."
