It may only be his first season in a United shirt but already Phil Jones is proving his worth to the squad.

His versatility has meant that he has been able to fit into a variety of holes and give performances that are a credit to him as a professional footballer.

Therefore, it`s no surprise that a former team-mate of his, the ex-Real Madrid defender Michel Delgado has sung his praises and also reckons he`s a sure-fire cert to captain his country one day, remarking,

“He is a future England captain – I`m absolutely convinced.”

“I remember a Carling Cup game for Blackburn when he was 17 and I said to people ‘crikey, he`s a good player`

“I loved his attitude but it was only a Carling Cup game so you reserve judgment, and then you see him in the league and he is just as good.”

“Now he has gone to United at 19 and he is among their best players. He has personality and talent.”

“When Capello played him in central midfield for England some complained but I thought it was rational and he played well against the world champions.”

“He has everything he needs to play there, centre back or right back never loses his concentration, he`s always well positioned and he`s a great athlete.”


So a case of not if but when!
