Phil Jones is ‘KICKED OUT of Man United’s dressing room at Carrington to make space for Erik ten Hag’s new signings’… as the injury-prone defender is snubbed AGAIN during his blighted Red Devils career
- Phil Jones has been ‘kicked out of Man United’s training ground dressing room’
- There is reportedly no more space in the first-team facility for the centre-half
- Capacity is ‘now full following the arrival of Erik ten Hag’s six summer signings’
- His dressing room snub marks the latest blow in Jones’ ill-fated United career
Phil Jones has been kicked out of Manchester United’s training ground dressing room to make space for Erik ten Hag’s new summer signings, according to reports.
The Red Devils’ first-team training facility at Carrington is designed to accommodate no more than 24 players and has been at maximum capacity following Manchester United’s summer spending spree.
And out-of-favour centre-back Jones is reportedly one of the casualties of United’s dressing room clear out, marking another blow in his ill-fated career at Old Trafford.
Phil Jones has reportedly been axed from Manchester United’s training ground dressing room
Carrington’s first-team facility ‘is now at capacity following Erik ten Hag’s summer business’
Third-choice left-back Brandon Williams, 20-year-old Teden Mengi and fellow centre-half Axel Tuanzebe have also been told to pack their bags and move down the corridor to the under-23 changing room, according to the Sun.
Former Ajax head coach Ten Hag made six new additions to the Red Devils’ squad this summer following his appointment in April.
Room at Carrington has squeezed since the arrivals of playmaker Christian Eriksen, ex-Real Madrid star Casemiro, goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, left-back Tyrell Malacia and former Ajax pair Antony and Lisandro Martinez.
Jones has only played 13 times during the last four seasons due mostly to his poor injury record
Jones’ dressing room snub reveals how far away the 30-year-old is from Ten Hag’s first-team plans, having struggled to carve out regular minutes in recent seasons.
The former England international has only played 13 times for Manchester United in his last four campaigns at the club and made his first appearance in two years in January as the Red Devils lost 1-0 to Wolves.
Ten Hag’s side host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday following three successive wins against Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester.
