Rio Ferdinand reacts as Ten Hag kicks Man United star out of dressing room



Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has said he hopes Phil Jones gets the chance to leave the club and revive his career elsewhere..

Ferdinand was reacting to reports that the 30-year-old had been kicked out of the first-team dressing room at Carrington.

Jones has made over 200 appearances at Old Trafford during an 11-year spell, but has slipped down the pecking order in recent seasons.

However, it is believed Jones had been banished from United’s training-ground dressing room to make space for Erik ten Hag’s new signings.

On Monday, the former England defender was left out of United’s Europa League squad.

“If it is true, that’s Erik ten Hag laying it out and saying: “You’re not a part of my plans, moving forward you’re surplus to requirements”.

“But that’s the game man. If you’re not involved and you’re not part of the first-team going forward, why are you going to be taking up someone else’s space?

“There might be a young player who Ten Hag wants to come in and gain some experience in the dressing room.

“We have to wait and see but Phil Jones, if he’s still there but has been demoted to the reserves, that’s a hard pill to swallow.

“He’s suffered some really horrific injuries so I just hope he stays fit and at some point he’ll be able to go out and play somewhere,” Ferdinand told Vibe with Five.
