Mike Phelan provides an update on forgotten Manchester United man Phil Jones

According to MEN, Mike Phelan has given an insight into the work Phil Jones has been doing at Manchester United. Assistant manager Mike Phelan revealed that the forgotten man is actually working extremely hard in the gym.

It’s hard to believe that Jones is still among the two players to remain from the Sir Alex Ferguson era. It has also been a decade since Jones was signed as one of the brightest names in the English game. The defender has featured only 224 times for United over the last decade.

Jones has become somewhat of a forgotten man at United these days after last featuring for the side in January 2020. Since then, injuries and fitness issues have kept him out of action for close to one-and-a-half seasons. Every time it looked as if he was close to featuring, there was some complication.

However, Mike Phelan seemed to provide a bit of an update regarding Jones.

“They all go in the gym now, it’s part of their training programme. Some love it, some hate it. But I think in the gym, right now, the people in the gym the most are usually the injured ones. That is a real thing they have to do in order to recover.

For us right now, credit to him as well, Phil Jones has been in that recovery phase quite a lot. He’s worked extremely hard and it’s mindblowing at times because you’re doing it on your own, so credit to him. Phil Jones has been terrific in the gym.”

While it’s definitely encouraging that the 29-year-old is still putting in the work, it is still unclear if and when he will return to action. Chances look bleak for the former Blackburn man even if he returns to full fitness. United have moved ahead without him and it’s not even a bad idea to part ways with him.
