Twitter reacts as Peter Schmeichel slams Manchester United for selling Jonny Evans
The Northern Irishman came through the youth ranks at United before going on to play for the first-team. A three-time Premier League champion, he went on to make 198 appearances for the club.
The 32-year-old joined West Bromwich Albion, where to his credit, he reinvented himself.
That earned him a move to Leicester City, where he has formed a solid partnership alongside current United skipper Harry Maguire and now Saglar Soyuncu.
Schmeichel’s tweet came following Leicester’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. A match in which his son played as well.
Evans has matured as a player. He simply was not good enough to be a starter at United. Having spent over a decade at the club, he never displayed the skills to show that he would be a world-class defender.
It is easier for him to play with less pressure on the back at Leicester. The pressure of donning the United jersey weighs down heavily on some – Evans included.
Fans took to Twitter to disagree with Schmeichel’s assessment. We take a look at a few of them below.
Twitter disagrees with Peter Schmeichel on Jonny Evans
He was horrendous for United.— Chunited (@WDCGRFFNB) July 4, 2020
Good at Leicester doesn’t mean good at United— ARX X nya 3 (@andrewramadhan) July 4, 2020
Because he’s shit— Jack (@JackGrund) July 4, 2020
Because he’s an utter bum that’s no where near united standard – hope that clears it up for you mr cartwheel xx— Alex (@AA_utd) July 4, 2020
Poor player at that level and even worse professional.— Philip Shortland (@PhilipShortland) July 5, 2020
Because he wasnt quality for United— RunkeGlenn (@RunkeGlenn) July 4, 2020
I don’t think you remember the player he was when he left.— Adam Doležálek (@Aidam95) July 4, 2020
He is miles better than he was back in that time.
He was finished the moment he spat at the opposition v Newcastle and was sent off…..van gaal (rightly or wrongly) was never going to trust him again. Was an idiot for doing it.— CraigMQ (@CMQ81) July 4, 2020
