So much fuss has been made over where Phil Jones should play.

Whilst he is a center back, some see his future further forward in midfield and he has even proved to be an adept right back.

The 19 year old is the toast of the town and his versatility, excelling in these varied positions, is only adding to the fanfare that surrounds him.

On Saturday, playing in midfield, he scored his first career goal and he excelled against Sweden there last month but it is expected that he could form a partnership with Chris Smalling at the heart of United’s defence for years to come.

It is pretty much confirmed that his future lies at center back but at the moment Jones is leaving the debating to others, he simply enjoys playing football,

“I enjoy playing anywhere. I enjoy playing football, so wherever I am asked to play I will play.

“If the manager asks me to play right-back, centre-back or midfield, I will go and do a job there.

“I don’t think it really matters at the moment that I am cementing a spot in a certain position because I am still young.

“Hopefully, as my career progresses that will happen.”
