Phil Jones explains why things are looking up for Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan


Phil Jones believes Manchester United are on the right path and have made big moves in the right direction during the 2016/17 campaign.

The side played 64 games in all competitions this season and it was all worth it after booking a place in the Champions League with victory in the Europa League final against Ajax.

Man United were also able to claim the EFL Cup and Community Shield, and although Premier League results have been disappointing, Jose Mourinho will be looking to build on it next season.

Speaking about the situation at the club, Jones is looking to build on a memorable season.

“There is no doubt that when everyone is fit and everyone is playing well and confident we can take on anyone,” he said.

“We’re not scared of anyone and we don’t look at other clubs and think we’re miles away from them, far from it. But we know we can certainly challenge better than we have done this season in the league.

“It’s been tough at times, especially at home when we’ve created loads of chances but there has been some goalkeeping heroics or we’ve made the wrong pass at the key time, but ultimately I think we’ve had a good season.

“Collectively as a squad whoever has played in the games and travelled has dug deep and we thoroughly deserved to get to the final. We worked hard to get there and ultimately the Champions League is where we want to be and the football we want to be playing next season. That’s where the club belongs and we had to earn that right. We’ve learnt a lot from the experience and that can only help us.”

The Champions League qualification was the main task for United, as it’ll be a massive boost for signing players, and it’s where the club belong.

Mourinho will be looking to build a side capable of challenging on both fronts and has already handed Ed Woodward his list of summer transfer targets which will take the squad further.
