Manchester United fans want Jones sold after England performance

Manchester United fans are absolutely crucifying Phil Jones, after the England defender struggled massively in Saturday’s clash with Belgium.

Jose Mourinho has some work to do this summer if he wants to catch Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, and the first priority has surely got to be in the heart of defence.

While fans are desperate for the signing of Alex Sandro to take over at left back, the Red Devils are uncharacteristically weak in the middle, where neither of Jones or Chris Smalling have ever lived up their billing.

Jones is taking loads of flak for his performance against Belgium on Saturday, as the 26 year-old was all over the place on several occasions.

Eden Hazard slipped in behind him to grab Belgium’s second goal in the 2-0 win, and the 6 ft defender’s positioning was just really poor throughout the match.

Fans will be hoping Eric Bailly can stay fit and Victor Lindelof can continue his impressive World Cup form, but if not they may be stuck with Jones yet again.
