Man Utd fans beg Phil Jones to 'find new club' as he's axed from squad list
Manchester United fans are begging Phil Jones to quit the club after the defender was brutally left out of Erik ten Hag's 25-man Premier League squad.The 30-year-old hasn't been a regular fixture in the side since the 2018/19 season, playing just six league matches in the three years since, and supporters were convinced he'd be on his way out over the summer when United brought in fellow centre back Lisandro Martinez.Jones, however, opted to stay, but has paid a heavy price as he'll now be unable to play in the Premier League unless he's registered in January.READ MORE: Ex-Man Utd star Jaap Stam tells Premier League teams how to defend vs Erling HaalandAfter being left out in the cold by Ten Hag, and with his contract up at the end of the season, it looks like Jones' 12-year association with United is nearing its end, though fans on social can't believe it hasn't ended sooner."How is Jones still a United player? Clearly never going to play, please leave Phil," one fan tweeted."Jones left out of Man United's Prem squad. Man needs to leave ASAP," wrote another, while a third commented: "Lol didn't even realise Jones still played for us."Has Phil Jones wasted his career?
