Phil Jones admits going through “hell and back” on painful road back from injury

Phil Jones has admitted he’s been to hell and back during his road to recovery at Manchester United, but he ‘sees the light at the end of the tunnel’.

Jones was once considered a future England captain.

Jones made only two Premier League appearances during the campaign. His last appearance was in the 19/20 season.

As the Red Devils attempted to sell the centre-back, the 29-year old failed to get any offers.

Jones has struggled with injuries of late, but when speaking to Manchester United’s podcast, he has revealed he is optimistic about the future.

Jones is happy to back training again

“I’m feeling good at the minute,” he said during an upcoming episode of the official United club podcast.

“Obviously, I’ve been through hell and back over the last couple of years. I struggled with my knee a little bit and [there] came a point after lockdown where I thought enough was enough.

“Thankfully, I see the light at the end of the tunnel now, and I’ve been back training, played a few behind-closed-doors games and I’m feeling really good at the minute.

“It’s so good to be back out training with the lads and enjoying being a footballer again because for the last 15 months, it’s been all ‘daddy daycare’ and not much football.”

Jones has fallen down the pecking order at United, and with the arrival of Raphael Varane competition for places has heightened.

The Englishman is still under contract until 2023.
