It’s been difficult – Man Utd player confirms exit from Ten Hag’s side. Phil Jones has confirmed he will leave Manchester United when his contract expires in the summer.
The 31-year-old has featured 229 times for the Premier League giants since moving to Old Trafford in 2011.
Jones has been out for the whole of this season due to injury. His last appearance came in a 3-0 win over Brentford 12 months ago.
“It’s been very difficult, the last couple of years,” Jones said.
“There is no hiding away from that. My family have been absolutely instrumental in keeping me on the straight and narrow and keeping me focused to try to get fit and try to play more.
“And, you know, I’ve missed playing football. I missed it. You grow up playing football and all you want to do is play football. It’s all I’ve known, from such a young age, is to do what you love doing for a living. I’ve been fortunate enough to do that, albeit not as much as I would have liked.”
