Phil Jones satisfied despite 'frustrating' season at Manchester United
The defender suffered badly with injuries this term
Wednesday 01 May 2013
Manchester United’s Phil Jones is satisfied with how the season is finishing despite his injury-hit campaign.
Jones did not make an appearance this season until November, after he recovered from a back and then knee injury.
The 21-year-old then played frequently up until February when he damaged his ankle in a tackle on Jobi McAnuff against Reading in their FA Cup tie.
United have since secured the Premier League title and Jones insisted he would learn from his experiences this term.
He told the club’s official magazine Inside United: “It has been frustrating. Certainly at the start of the season.
“It was tough as I had a back injury and then, in the first or second training session back, I injured my knee again.
“It was kind of one thing after the next and I felt like 'is this sort of thing going to end?'
“Thankfully, I got over that and played in quite a few games and cup games as well.
“The cup ties really gave me a chance to have more game-time and I think I've done reasonably well towards the back end of the season.”
