United's crystal defender puts an end to his nightmare

Phil Jones' last game in the 'Red Devils' jersey was in January 2020, in a round of the FA Cup against Tranmere Rovers.


Phil Jones' last game in the Manchester United jersey was in January 2020, in an FA Cup round against Tranmere Rovers. Since then, nothing at all. An injury, another injury, an operation on the knee, a relapse and a lot of competition in the starting eleven, or even in the calls, to reap the head. Many have forgotten that Jones is still a Red Devils footballer and that he is only 29 years old. In fact, he has two more contract seasons ahead of him.

If Phil Jones is still on the Old Trafford squad, it's because they haven't found anyone interested in buying him. His salary is not appealing for smaller clubs - more than 135,000 euros a week - and his physical condition, always on the verge of injury, is a drawback. That is why Solskjaer has decided that Jones is one of the five centers this season along with Varane, Maguire, Lindelöf and Bailly. Although he will not play much, he will be able to participate in the cups for a minute until he regains the rhythm of the competition.

His comeback match with Manchester United occurred this week ... and it was in a closed-door friendly. The Red Devils faced Burnley at Old Trafford on Tuesday and Jones entered the final 30 minutes of the clash that ended in a 3-1 victory for the hosts. They also played Van de Beek, Lingard or Sancho, who debuted last weekend and who will soon knock on the door of starting in the Premier League.
