Sanchez: Northern Ireland have made Man Utd’s Evans better

Sanchez said: “Jonny’s development with Northern Ireland was perhaps the precursor to him getting a move to Sunderland.

“He might not have come to Roy Keane’s attention playing for Antwerp after making his debut against Spain.

“The Belgian second division is not the greatest standard in the world.

“But now he is looking good for Sunderland after playing for United in pre-season and for their reserves.”
