Jones spoke for the first time since making his first appearance since January 2020

Phil Jones has said that his return to the Manchester United first-team has made him “feel like a footballer again.”

The 29-year-old made his first appearance for the side since a third round FA Cup tie away to Tranmere Rovers in January, 2020 last week and was given a standing ovation for his display despite United’s defeat to Wolves.

And Jones has admitted that it was an emotional experience to make his return at Old Trafford.

“You know, I spent so long out, off the pitch and out of the squad – it’s been horrible at times, but it’s nice to be back out with the lads. I feel like a footballer again,” he told Team Viewer.
