Rio Ferdinand urges Phil Jones to find a new club

Phil Jones is making his way into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

The 29-year old defender played his first game for the Red Devils in 19 months against Burnley after he was sidelined with a knee injury.

He has two years left on his contract but a chance of a regular starting spot looks slim after the arrival of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.

Club legend Rio Ferdinand believes he’s taking up a youth player’s position in the squad and should pursue his footballing career elsewhere.

‘He’s taking up a youth team player’s position in that squad right now,’ Ferdinand told Vibe with FIVE.

‘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.’
