UEFA Champions League

Photo: Manchester United defender trains at Carrington for the first time in 2021

England International, Phil Jones has been spotted back at Carrington for the first time in 2021, the centre-back hasn't played a game since January 2020 due to a succession of injuries issues.

Phil Jones was training alone, not with the rest of the group, and isn't in contention to feature against Spanish side, Granada.

For Phil Jones, just being out there back at Carrington is progress. He has had a tough time.

See photo below;

It is clear at this stage Jones isn't the player the English Giants wanted him to become, and he needs a fresh start

To do so, the England International has to get fit, and the timing is quite positive here, ahead of the transfer market.

Phil Jones has a few weeks to recover and could even come in and make a brief outing from the bench at the end of the campaign in a league match if the Red Devils qualify for next campaign’s UEFA Champions League early.

At this stage you just have to wish the Englishman well and hope he can recover fully and stay fit, secure a move elsewhere, and try and kick on at a team which is willing to grant him regular first team chances.

At age 29, Phil Jones should still have plenty to offer
