“It was an absolute honour and one of the best nights of my life.”

The 35-year-old added: “I never thought – you know what it’s like when you get to a certain age, you’re winding down your career – but there was no other option for me. So I came back in and thankfully my body has seen me through.”

“I think for me in the time I’ve been here is just observing and see how they play as it’s different than my previous club so just take my time.”

On starting in the future: “The role that was made out to me was coming in as cover, so I had to fill the gap so for me it was just about trying to be ready.”

Jonny Evans also spoke to the broadcaster, saying: “It was massive, I think we’ve had a tough couple of games. This is a tough place to come.”

“Obviously when you hit this age you think about winding down a bit but it was a great moment for me personally and it couldn’t have gone any better.”

Bruno Fernandes was not shy to praise Jonny’s assist during post-match interview. According to TNT Sports, the Portuguese said:

“It was a great pass (from Evans), I know he has a great quality playing the ball in behind. I was waiting for him, it was tough to get behind them, but it was a great ball and a great finish and good to get the win.”

Bruno added: “We knew that we could come from this, I think we’ve been a little bit unlucky but the performance wasn’t the best.”

“Today we showed great spirit, I think with Burnley the points they have doesn’t show the quality they have.”
