Evans: Make me the captain

Jonny Evans intends to collect another winner’s medal at Wembley this afternoon — but he will not feel really satisfied until he is lifting a trophy as captain.

Northern Ireland star Evans has always been regarded as one of the brightest home-grown Manchester United prospects.

At 22, the Newtownabbey-born defender has already sailed past 50 first-team appearances for the Old Trafford outfit, picked up a Premier League title and a Carling Cup winner’s medal, as well as sitting on the bench during last season’s Champions League final defeat to Barcelona in Rome.It is anticipated he will be rewarded for helping out in a crisis by being named in Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting line-up to face Aston Villa.
