A Fit Phil Jones Will Be A Great Manchester United Defender - Jose Mourinho

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes Phil Jones has all the attributes needed to become a top-class centre-half for Manchester United.  The 25-year-old is off to a strong start this season, starting alongside Eric Bailly in each of United's opening three Premier League matches and helping to secure three wins and three clean sheets.
Injuries have been a consistent problem for Jones at United, derailing the progress of a player identified as a future captain by Sir Alex Ferguson after being signed as a teenager from Blackburn Rovers in 2011, but the future appears bright under Mourinho if he can stay fit.

He said “He's potentially a very good player, he's still young. He's still in a learning age but for years and years and years he was injury-prone. He has a problem now. He's complaining about an ankle problem so he's the kind of player where we need to have him always in our hands with a lot of care from the medical department, from the fitness coach, from my assistants, in the gym, working always on prevention, on recovery. If we manage to have him safe and protected from injuries, I think potentially he's everything I like in a central defender.”
