Phil Jones may be a mere novice in terms of international caps, with three to his name, but his brief career as an England international has already convinced Fabio Capello that he is something special.

In the red-top press this morning, there are quotes from Fabio that emphasize his value to the team as well as discussing the value of his versatility to the squad.

This is what Fabio had to say,

“Yes, it is difficult to find a player like him, really difficult.”

“In my career I found probably two players like that. They were Franco Baresi and Fernando Hierro who played as midfielders and after they played centre-half and I think were really good players.”

“Jones can play in different positions at the top level.”

“He is so young but he is a big talent because when he receives the ball he always plays without fear. Good passes and good solutions. Every time he chooses the best solution.”

“I know something about football and the solution that he chooses every time when he receives the ball is always the best.”


Reading between the lines, I can`t help feeling that Fabio has big plans for Jones in the build up to the Euro 2012 Finals and that by next summer he`ll be an integral part of the squad.
