Phil Jones has claimed that Chris Smalling and he have succeeded to silence all the rumbling critics ranting the team performance. He said that the fascinating performance that resulted in a victorious battle against Tottenham and Liverpool. These two victories have certainly displayed that the red devil has just been resurrected as the team performance has been striving to climb up.
Jones said that they have shown that people had been wrong. This was due to the fact that a great number of critics had soundly assumed and extrapolated yet what mattered most was that the team had the liberty to show what they got. The team had the power to show that critics had been wrong in their assumption. Jones said that critics in football would always be there, ranting team performance all the time. However, what he cared about was that things could be turned updown.
Jones furthered that they were at a glorious club, Manchester United and if things turned out erroneously then there was always going to be people who had varied awful things to spit out regarding the team performance. “sometimes people just want to have a dig and a pop at other”, Jones said. What was important for him was that if the team continued the fascinating performance, he was certain that things would be fine.
Having played with three-defender strategy for since the outset of the season, Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal switched back to a more classical formation, placing Jones and Smalling at the heart of the team. The Dutchman has also been copiously awarded for the faith he put in the England duo. Jones added that it had been known that he and Smalling were going to be forthcoming centre backs at Manchester United but it had been surprising how the players could fit well in the new strategy.
Jones also said that someone had told him that the other day the team had actually only played as a team about four times in four seasons. It was impossible to spark a partnership and further sustain it in just four consecutive games. “hopefully, now we have had other victorious games together and we can keep it altogether”, Jones added. The new change in the squad strategy made by the Dutchman certainly has conjured up lots of hope that the Red Devil can get back to its exalted thrones in the Premier League and, of course, the Champions League.
