Phil Jones who played an important role in United’s first leg against Madrid got injured against Reading in the FA Cup fixture. Manchester United’s manager Sir Alex gave the update on Phil Jones injury:
“Phil Jones is the one we’re concerned about in terms of the Real Madrid game,” Sir Alex told reporters. “We’re working hard on it and I’d say he has an outside chance – no more than that.
“Phil tackled awkwardly the other night and tangled his foot there, that’s why he has the injury he has. He has the courage and willingness to tackle. Bryan Robson was the same. Bryan couldn’t see danger and neither can Phil. It’s a measure of his courage and I don’t want to take that away from him.
The Scott also praised the young English CB and compared him to the likes of United legend Bryan Robson.
“Phil did an incredible job in Madrid. He doesn’t care who he’s playing against, he has no fear of playing against anyone. We’ll have to wait and see if he’s fit for the second leg. It’s two weeks away. A lot can happen.
“When you look at his tackles, he tackles like a young man. Maybe he’s too brave. He was unbalanced in the tackle and ended up injured. He’s an outside chance, that’s all. Other than that, everybody’s fit for QPR.
