Northern Ireland International Jonny Evans learned one very, very valuable lesson after attending Manchester United’s Champions League Press Conference alongside gaffer Sir Alex Ferguson…. Don’t mention the fact your girlfriend is in the audience.
Seated alongside Sir Alex Ferguson at the top table at Old Trafford, the 21-year-old Northern Irishman listened attentively as his manager spoke earnestly about the benefits that marriage has brought to Wayne Rooney’s life and football.
It wasn’t long before the spotlight was on him, though, when he was asked by Sportsmail if maybe it was time for him to tie the knot with his girlfriend, Kate.
Northern Ireland defender Evans replied: ‘I really don’t want to talk about it, especially as my girlfriend is sitting in the middle of you all.
‘She is on a work placement with ITV this week.’
As all eyes turned to pick out an embarrassed-looking Kate, Ferguson seized his chance.
‘Get him tied down, dear,’ Ferguson said with a laugh.
‘Rings are cheap now.’
