Manchester United star admits frustration at missing out on top four

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has revealed his frustration that the Red Devils will not be in the Champions League next season, as reported by the club’s official site.

Jones has been one of few players to come out of the season with any credit under David Moyes, and is set to be on the plane to Brazil with England for the World Cup this summer.

United travel to Everton today and will be keen to hamper the Toffees Champions League hopes, while increasing their own chances of a Europa League finish.

Jones is focused on the next five games, but admitted it has been tough to stay confident after a tough season.

“It’s very frustrating [that the club is not involved in a title race], but we’ve got five games left and it’s five games we want to win – we need to win them too,” Jones told MUTV.

“We want to finish the season as high as we can in the league table and to do that we have to win these games.”

“Obviously we want to be in the Champions League, but that’s probably not going to be the case next season,” Jones added.

“However, the Europa League is still a good competition and one that we should strive to be in. Any European competition is tough as there are any number of teams that can cause you problems. If we’re in it, we’ll want to win it.”
