The ‘Phil Jones in midfield’ debate continues to rumble on.
Whilst it is agreed that he will end up at center back, there are still some who feel he would do a job in midfield.
He has been tried there at various points this season including last night against Sweden and has further fuelled the argument as Jamie Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
Redknapp, who also agreed that Jones would eventually end up at center back, even had time to pay him an off hand comment comparing him to Steven Gerrard,
“Centre back will be his position.
“But if you have to play him in midfield, put him in the holding role when he can see the game in front of him.
“He looked a different boy to the game against Spain, where he looked lost.
“That was almost Steven Gerrard-like when he drove forward with pace and power. He has a very big future.”
