Injured Evans delays ankle op to play through the pain for Northern Ireland
28 August 2009 02:40
Jonny Evans is ready to undergo surgery on his troublesome ankle in a little more than fortnight.
Sportsmail revealed, the Manchester United defender has been playing through the pain barrier since picking up the knock last Christmas with Rio Ferdinand out for another three weeks and Nemanja Vidic possibly facing and FA rap for his flare-up with Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega last week.
But Evans is growing tired of taking pain-killers and is considering an operation on his return from international duty in early September.
That would rule him out of the Manchester derby on September 20 but Evans has revealed he needs to resolve the problem.
