Phil Jones: Manchester United "can take on anyone" next season

Posted May 31, 2017

He helped United win the Europa League with many suggesting that he should be the next captain if Wayne Rooney leaves the club.

Neil Fissler does add that the Portuguese "has 12 months left to run of a four-year deal", which is patently untrue, and leads us to doubt the veracity of the story, mind you. "I hope that you have the same feeling, and that you are excited and really looking forward to the next season".

Manchester United won the Europa League on Wednesday night after goals by Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan condemned Ajax to a 2-0 defeat, ensuring United qualify for the Champions League and being able to attract the best of players worldwide. Ajax was a tough opponent (it's very fearless to give so much confidence to so many young players in a team, so credit to them for that).

"Obviously the atmosphere was very special due to the bad attacks in Manchester just two days before the final", But that circumstance, instead of making us weak, gave us more courage to try to win and offer the title to the city, something to celebrate and to cheer up many people, at least for a few hours". I prefer to keep calm and to keep my mind calm because I feel that I still have to do more for the club. The Premier League's top six, also made up of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, were far ahead of the rest of the division last term, and all six will be playing European football next season.

Have a great summer.

However, regardless of what happens with United's current number one this summer, Ederson looks very likely to be lining up for rivals City next season rather than in Mourinho's side.
