Souness baffled by Man Utd selling Evans: He's better than Maguire

Liverpool hero Graeme Souness says Manchester United should never have sold Jonny Evans.

Souness rates the Leicester City defender ahead of United captain Harry Maguire.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Souness said: "The thing you have to get right at a football club is recruitment and since Fergie went it has been a masterclass in how to get it wrong.

"That's how I see it. You look at the players they've brought in, the players they've sold.

"Jonny Evans was allowed to leave. Jonny Evans is better than any centre-half they have now.

"I just don't get it."
