IPSWICH Town joint-managing director Ian Milne spoke on behalf of Marcus Evans in reaffirming the owner’s commitment to the club.

Milne was addressing fans at a question and answer session at the Mulberry Tree Pub, along with first-team players Frank Nouble and Anthony Wordsworth.

Despite his position, Evans has chosen to remain out of the spotlight at Portman Road but that has no bearing on his affection for the Blues.

Milne said: “Marcus is as committed as you or I and has put millions into the club.

“He is as enthusiastic about as the club as much as ever

“After Paul Jewell left us, Marcus brought Mick McCarthy, who is the real deal and shows commitment. If Marcus was not wanting to stick around, he would not have gone for Mick.

“The aim is to get into the Premier League and he would not put all that money in, year in, year out otherwise.
