Solskjaer hints at Jones return to Manchester United squad after injury nightmare


The defender has not been included in the Premier League roster for this season as he continues to recover from a series of setbacks

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted Phil Jones might still have a future at Manchester United, despite not including the defender in this season’s Premier League squad.

The centre back has struggled for game time since Solskjaer was given the job on a permanent basis and last featured in January, but the United manager insisted that despite not including the defender - who has three years left on his contract - in his domestic or Champions League squads his season, he could still have a part to play.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference Solskjaer said: “Phil has been injured and had an operation and working really hard to be back, hopefully he'll get fit during December, that was a natural thing when you're injured, you can't be in the squad can you, but he's working really diligently and he’ll be coming back soon.”
