Manchester United FC manager and the 'special one' Jose Mourinho has recently expressed his fear after England/Manchester United defender Phil Jones who didn't play much last season (2015/16) picked a knee injury at the beginning of this season.🔜
The manager has lauded the 24-year-old for stepping up in the absence of two key defenders, summer signee Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling...
Jones is set for his fourth consecutive start this as the Red Devils host West Ham later today, Sunday November 27, 2016 at Old Trafford.
"His condition looks very good and his confidence is improving," - Mourinho said.
"Phil is playing really well, no mistakes in 90 minutes, and I'm really happy for him because so many people had him down as injury prone and believed it would be hard for him to get back to his best level."
"I have to confess that when he was injured again at the beginning of the season even I was feeling that fear but he has put in some great performances in the past weeks to give us the stability we need after losing [Eric] Bailly and [Chris] Smalling."He added:
"He likes to defend as a defender."
"Sometimes defenders now think the most important quality is to build from the back.
"That is not the most important quality. The most important quality is to defend."
