Fergie Heaps Praise On Jones

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson feels Phil Jones "has more in his locker" than Chelsea defender John Terry.

Jones, a £16.5 million signing from Blackburn in 2011, has impressed since returning earlier in the month from a back injury that threatened to derail his season.

The 20-year-old has started United's previous three games, with Ferguson pleased with the player's contribution.
 
"Jones has got more in his locker than John. Terry has got the ­experience and has become a fantastic central figure at Chelsea," Ferguson told reporters.
 
"But as a young player, John would be the first to admit he didn't have the pace of Phil Jones."
 
The Scot added: "Phil is a versatile boy, he can play anywhere.
 
"He's quick, two-footed, reads games well and is competitive. He’s doing very well."
