Man United fans not happy after Phil Jones gets new contract

Ah, the many faces of Phil Jones have given us a laugh over the years, right? Well, several of us thought he’d be off this summer after some awful performances coupled with a perennial injury.

Well, today, Manchester United took the decision to hand the 26-year-old a new long-term contract at Old Trafford. Yep…

Anyway, Jones is here to stay, unless United have done it purely so they can get some sort of transfer fee back for the England international.

Unfortunately, he just hasn’t kicked on since he joined United back in 2011. Heck, that means he’s only two years away from having a testimonial at the club which is scary in itself…

All jokes aside, he hasn’t been that bad over recent weeks since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over. But you just know he always has one big mistake in him which is probably going to cost us at some point over the next month – in which we have some huge fixtures.
