Meanwhile, Phil Jones had recently revealed how he is always taunted by friends about his facial reactions and he is not bothered by the jokes.
"It’s banter, my mates banter me all the time about it," he told Goal.
"It is what it is. I’m not too fussed about that either. My mates send me pictures every single night on the Whatsapp group taking the mick out of me. It’s banter, it is what it is. It doesn’t bother me.”, he concluded
Additionally, Jones also went on to reveal the fact that he no longer listens to the criticism he faces on a regular basis, particularly after he signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2023.
He concluded "People can make their own opinions up, ultimately I’ve got another contract at United. I’ve been here for eight or nine years now and I’ve won the Premier League, been to two World Cups, been to a Euros, played in the Champions League, won the Europa League, the FA Cup, so people can talk but ultimately they’re the stats and that’s what I’ve done.”
