Bowyer Delighted At Prospect Of Evans
Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has stated that he is extremely delighted at the prospect of working with midfielder Corry Evans next season. The former Hull city man has been an influential player for the club since joining them during the summer transfer window. He has helped them make a late push towards the play-offs. The midfielder was at his best in the 3-1 win over Charlton. After the match, Bowyer stated that Evans has all the attributes to become a great player for Blackburn. The club will be pushing for a play-off place next season and the manager says that the midfielder will be a key part of the squad.
Still only 23 years old, Evans has already represented several clubs, but he will be hoping to establish himself at one place. The impact of the midfielder could have been excellent had it not been for a poor tackle from Israel’s Sheran Yeini earlier in the season. The midfielder suffered a horrible injury in November when Sheran Yeini tackled him while playing in the World Cup qualifying match. He has returned to first-team action just now. However, his form make a little too late for his club given that the play-off are looking already decided between the likes of Wigan and Reading.
“Corry was the best player on the pitch on Saturday – and it’s as simple as that. He dominated the midfield and it was an outstanding performance from him. The timing of his injury and how it occurred, playing for Northern Ireland, was a massive blow for us and for the lad himself. But credit to him, he’s worked ever so hard with the medical team to get back and we are seeing what a good player he is. And he is only going to get better,” said Bowyer.
