Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has come out to say that Phil Jones should no longer be playing for the club. He recently revealed that the English CB is only taking up a youth team player’s position at the moment.
According to him, Phil Jones has clearly had several injuries and they have absolutely annihilated his career thus far.
He added that Jones has not been able to fully establish himself in the team and it betrays the potential he had as a youngster.
His words, “He’s taking up a youth team player’s position in that squad right now.”
“He’s had too many injuries… I was in the same team as Phil Jones, he came from Blackburn as a young kid, everyone was saying he was going to be this great player.”
“Huge potential but injuries have absolutely annihilated his career and then confidence issues at certain times as well.”
“He’s never been able to fully establish himself in the team. Whether it’s injuries, lack of form, lack of confidence.”
“I think he should’ve gone ages ago. He should’ve gone before Chris Smalling went. Find a new club and play some football.”
“I am baffled at how he’s still been given a new deal at the club given his past few years at the club. It just doesn’t make sense to me how you get a new deal.”
“I remember back in the day you’d have to do some absolute graft to get a new deal. You’d have to be putting in performances, you’d have to be a vital member of the team. Phil Jones isn’t that.”
