Phil Jones, the former defender, has been making his presence felt around the club’s academy sessions.

While there was speculation that Jones might be returning to coach the club’s Under-18s, it has been clarified that he has been at Carrington primarily to observe the academy training sessions. The Manchester Evening News reported that there are currently no plans for Jones to take on a coaching role with the U18s. Instead, he is taking some time to contemplate his next career moves.

Jones left Manchester United when his contract expired during the summer, marking the end of his long-standing association with the club. However, it appears that former players like Jones often engage with the academy, providing valuable insights and guidance to the younger generation of players. It’s seen as an opportunity for these young talents to learn from someone who has a wealth of knowledge accumulated during his successful career at one of the biggest clubs in the world.

Upon his departure from the club in May, Jones penned an emotional letter to United supporters, expressing his deep gratitude for the time he spent at Old Trafford. He described it as “living the dream at the biggest club in the world.” During his time with Manchester United, Jones made 229 appearances and was part of the team that secured the Premier League title in 2013.
