Phil Jones has ended a 12-year partnership with Manchester United.

Manchester United announced on its official website on the 19th (Korean time) that “Phil Jones is leaving the team as his contract expires this summer.”

Phil Jones joined Manchester United from Blackburn Rovers in 2011. Although he has a rugged style, he caught the eye of manager Alex Ferguson and became a member of the Manchester United first team. He played an active role as a Manchester United main player, taking on dirty work even as a defensive midfielder during difficult times for the team.

After the days of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, he has emerged as the next Manchester United central defender. He was also called up to the England national team and hit the ground. However, he was often hampered by frequent injuries and did not show his skills.

Until Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure, he was often on the field. In 2019, he signed a new contract with Manchester United and received a weekly wage of 75,000 pounds (approximately 125.04 million won). Even after renewing his contract, his condition did not improve, but he did not leave the team.먹튀검증

He’s on the Manchester United first-team list, but he hasn’t even sat on the bench. Team legend Rio Ferdinand also said on the YouTube channel ‘Vibe With Five’, “Phil Jones has to leave Manchester United now. It’s kind of embarrassing.” He shook his head.

In January 2022, after 712 days, the Premier League return match was played. After Eric ten Haag took the helm, he couldn’t even train. Manchester United have the option of a one-year extension for Phil Jones, but were planning to sell him as a free agent this summer, and the decision was made in the end.

On his departure from Manchester United, Phil Jones said: “It’s been a very difficult few years. It’s undeniable. I missed playing football. The return against Wolverhampton was an unforgettable moment. I will never forget the love I received from the fans at Manchester United.”
