Ole Gunnar Solskjaer questions Manchester United decision over Jonny Evans

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has questioned his club over the sale of defender Jonny Evans to Leicester City.

Evans was in a solid form when Leicester eliminated United from the FA Cup over the weekend with the Norwegian having a feeling that the Irishman could have stayed longer at the club.

“You know, Jonny Evans should have been a Manchester United player now, of course,” Solskjaer said after the game as quoted by The Sport Review. “But sometimes football takes you other places when changes in management happen.

“I’m sure that Jonny Evans has feelings for Manchester United and we have feelings for him too. So it is a pleasure to see him playing as well as he does and we just have to move on. But of course, local lads – I call them local lads, you know what I mean – we want to build our next youth team on players like Jonny Evans if you like. With Mason Greenwood, Scott McTominay and Dean Henderson and all of the lads added on with top quality players of course.”

It's almost six years since Louis van Gaal allowed Evans to leave United for West Bromwich Albion for an initial £6million; the defender leaving the Baggies for Leicester three years later.
