star quality to go forward and become a top defender. He is certainly showing that at United now.
How much has he improved since then and in what particular areas?
I think he reads the game a lot better and keeps things much more simple. He would have watched Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand over the years and learned a lot from them.
Do you think he will eventually become an automatic choice as a natural successor to the likes of Rio and Vida?
He definitely will. Rio has had problems with injuries and not played as much but Jonny has always been the perfect foil. He’s been there or thereabouts for the last two seasons and has been outstanding.
