Evans: United have bright future

Jonny Evans has predicted a bright future for Manchester United because of the young team Sir Alex Ferguson has put in place.

• Okwonga: Return like Federer
• Payne: Welcome to Vanchester

It is a first taste of league glory for the likes of Danny Welbeck, David de Gea, Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley and Shinji Kagawa – something which Evans hopes will feed their hunger for more.

"We've got a lot of experience and players who are maturing at the right time," he told the club's official website. "I can honestly say that we all come into training every day with a smile on our faces. The first title just makes you more hungry. You experience that feeling and you don't want anyone else to have it.

"You develop a selfishness and a determination to experience that feeling again and again. It's a great motivation for everyone."

"What happened last season has been in the back of our minds and perhaps subconsciously it gave us an extra motivation. But we're always determined to succeed here no matter what. You have to look forward. That's one of the great things about the manager - he is looking forward regardless of whether we win or lose the league."

One particular reason for United's success has been the form of Robin van Persie and Evans was quick to single the Netherlands international out for special praise.

"Robin has been absolutely fantastic,"he added. "His work-rate and finishing ability are phenomenal. He wants to score goals and he's disappointed when he doesn't even when we get the points.

"He was captain of Arsenal and obviously a very mature person and very respectful guy - he's got a bit of an aura about him and has settled in brilliantly. You can tell by the way he plays and his whole demeanour that he is really enjoying things here.

"He came here because of his respect for the philosophy of the club and it's paid off for him."
