'You want to feel valuable' Jonny Evans speaks after leaving West Brom for Leicester
sbo666Jonny Evans is says he couldn’t turn down “ambitious” Leicester City after leaving West Bromwich Albion. The centre-half, who was captain at The Hawthorns last season, has moved to the King Power Stadium for a fraction of the fee that Albion turned down this time last summer, after the club suffered relegation to the Championship.
Evans, considered to be one of the best defenders that the Baggies have boasted in recent history, soured his reputation amongst the fanbase this past season after being part of the infamous quartet who allegedly stole a taxi while on a training camp trip to Barcelona in February. Now having departed, the Northern Irishman has spoken of how he hopes to “feel valuable” at his new club.
“It’s great. I’m happy it’s all gone through and obviously I wanted my future sorted quickly,” Evans told LCFC TV. “This opportunity came up and it was one that I couldn’t turn down really. “The club are ambitious, they want to achieve things, hopefully I can be a part of that. “Most players do their talking on the pitch. I want to be able to do that and show the ability I’ve got.
“I don’t think at any stage of your career you stop learning. I want to keep learning myself and progress, improve and hopefully there’ll be players I can learn things from too. “I’ve got experience in the Premier League, sbo666 I can add things to the younger lads going forward. “The most important thing as a player to a team is you want to feel valuable to the team.”
With the benefit of hindsight If West Brom knew last summer what was in store for Jonny Evans they’d have surely bitten Leicester’s arm off when they offered £21 million for the Northern Irishman, writes Paul Suart. The Baggies snubbed the offer, and those from Manchester City and Arsenal, and were left with an unsettled skipper unable to move on from all the speculation.
His form dipped massively last season when he came nothing close to the level of performance consistently produced in sbo666 his first two campaigns. Let’s not forget, Evans was magnificent in his first two years at The Hawthorns. A £6 million purchase from Manchester United, Evans must surely go down as one of Tony Pulis’ greatest West Brom signing, irrespective of last season’s disaster.
