Jonny Evans says Manchester United’s pre-season tour is a chance for the club’s youngsters to impress new manager David Moyes.

The 50-year-old took control of the reigning Premier League champions on Monday after agreeing to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson in May.

And Evans believes United’s tour of Australia and the Far East will be an opportunity to catch Moyes’ eye as the Scot evaluates his squad.

“The tours are great for us in many ways because we get to see new things, do new things and experience different cultures, and also get our fitness for the season with the training that we do. And most of the games that we play end up being tough games,” Evans told United’s website.

“Since I have been involved in pre-season tours, the friendlies have always been hard.

“I came into the squad about four or five years ago and all the games were a massive challenge for me and that’s still the case for a lot of the younger lads.

“The more experienced players in the team know how to look after themselves and what they need to do, but the younger lads are always very determinedto impress the manager.”
