Phil Jones names Manchester United Legends five-aside without Ronaldo

Phil Jones has been at Manchester United since 2011 and he’s played with some top footballers down the years.

Our No.4 arrived from Blackburn as an 18-year-old and had the pleasure of playing with legendary defenders like Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand during his time at the club.

Speaking to club media for a segment on MUTV, Jones was asked to name his Manchester United legends’ five-a-side line-up.

The defender named Edwin van der Sar as his goalkeeper instead of Peter Schmeichel.

In defence, Nemanja Vidic and Steve Bruce got the nod, but that means there’s no room for Rio Ferdinand.

Jones went with Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney as his attacking players, snubbing the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Eric Cantona – not to mention George Best, Sir Bobby Charlton and Denis Law.

The Portuguese’s superstar was not with Jones at United when he first emerged as the world’s best player, so the defender has only known him as the 37-year-old, who announced his homecoming to Old Trafford a year ago.

  1. I idly wonder how much, per playing-minutes, Jones has cost United over the years?

    Must be United’s top earner for doing nothing.
