Our resident Manchester United punters are settling in for a week of international football, with England set to face off against Germany in Dortmund on Wednesday.
The Red Devils fans are excited to see a number of their players playing for their respective countries this week, though news has filtered into the Tavern that hasn’t surprised some fans.
According to John Cross from the Mirror, Phil Jones has picked up an injury in England training so will be returning to Manchester United.
The 25-year-old has had a torrid time with injuries in recent years, and our landlord feels sorry for the former Blackburn Rovers defender, and says that Jones could have flourished if it wasn’t for his poor injury record.
It isn’t all bad though for Man United fans, as Chris Smalling is still involved with Gareth Southgate’s squad and could be in line for a start against the Germans on Wednesday night.
United fans…. Are you surprised at this news? Will Jones flourish at United in the coming years? Let us know below!
