Phil Jones

Phil Jones

English defender, Phil Jones kick-started his football career with Blackburn Rovers in their youth team in 2002. After garnering experience with the youth team, he finally broke into the senior team in 2009.

In his debut match, he helped the team in a 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest. Also in his Premier League debut against Chelsea, he was instrumental in a 1-1 draw. In the following year, he was slotted into the defensive midfielder role, but he adapted well. Unfortunately, he picked up an injury in his knee which nearly put him out for the season.

Then, in 2010-11, Phil Jones caught the eye of Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. He was apparently impressed with Jones' commitment and leadership skills at centre-back. This was especially when Blackburn held United to a 1–1 draw when the latter clinched the 2010–11 title.
