In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Jonny Evans spoke about what it's like to return to United.
Naturally, he was asked how he experienced the win over Aston Villa. The 35-year-old has seen many big Boxing Day moments over the years, but admits the final moments are the best.
Evans reveals that he did not know who scored the last goal, but was happy to see that it was Rasmus Hoglund who celebrated the goal.
– I think we were all happy for Ramos. I think he's been waiting for this goal for a long time.
The result against Aston Villa was a first Premier League result for the young Dane who has been a lifelong United fan. Hoglund witnessed many of Evans' appearances for United between 2006 and 2015. Of course, the two talked about this matter.
-It's almost unbelievable how much he knows about football. If anyone has any football questions or wonders what happened in a match, Rasmus always knows the answer.
Evans was also asked about the other youngster who excelled in the match against Aston Villa, Alejandro Garnacho.
-He has already shown his qualities. When I watched United play last season, I always thought he was a player who could play as a substitute and make good tackles. He has shown over the past few months that he is ready to start games. He has stepped up and you can see he has developed as a player.
Ineos and Erik ten Hag
Christmas didn't just contain matches. There have also been big changes in the club. On Christmas Eve, it became clear that Sir Jim Ratcliffe had bought 25% of the club through his company Ineos Groups.
– I'm sure everyone is excited about what's going to happen. It's a change that everyone at the club will be aware of.
The United defender says the players were so busy with the fixtures that they did not consider a change and that it is likely to remain that way until the January break.
-I think we will see more changes when things fall into place.
Jonny Evans signed for United on deadline day after the summer transfer window. He says he is grateful that Erik ten Hag brought him back to the club.
– It's nice to work with Erik ten Hag. He gave me the opportunity to return to the club. He showed that he trusts me when he sends me on the field.
