Phil Jones signs new contract with Manchester United through 2023

"I think we're too far behind this year, obviously".

"He's gone in there and put a smile on people's faces and got the rewards, because they look an outstanding team all of a sudden again".

United hired Solskjaer on a caretaker basis to replace Jose Mourinho in December, acting as a stop-gap, while they conduct a "thorough recruitment process" for a permanent successor.

For now, though, the focus is on Saturday lunchtime's trip to embattled Fulham and getting a win that can see them break into the top four. "We know at that moment there are some fantastic wingers in modern football: [Ousmane] Dembele, we have also [Raheem] Sterling who is a fantastic player, Anthony Martial, Eden Hazard... but I think Marcus is different".

For the last two years, every Summer the English versatile has been linked with a move away from United.


While this game vs Fulham will be absolutely crucial in terms of the league position but the manager will undoubtedly have one eye on the game against PSG which means we can expect a bit of a reshuffle. Following his arrival, good karma has just poured in thereafter. Fulham is a character revealer. Can we forget about PSG and all the games coming up? "He knows what it takes, he's been here so long so he knows what it takes for us to move up the table".

"The thing we laugh about is that I miss quite a few in training, whereas in a match, I may only get one chance and I manage to convert it".

Jones has 208 appearances for United in all competitions in an injury-hit career but Solskjaer backed the 26-year-old to add to that tally in his "prime years" at the club. I always tell him that if he plays simple in our half, even in midfield, after [that] he can get his magic out and he can win games for us.

"They know the league and the club inside out, so to pass that on and get us playing how we are has been flawless. It was hard when he broke down, because he would have travelled this weekend".
