Manchester United defender Phil Jones has lifted the lid on the behind the scenes side of Old Trafford skipper Wayne Rooney that fans don’t really get to see, revealing just how important the joint all-time leading goalscorer remains off the pitch.
“He knows how to speak to everyone. He knows some players need a pat on the back and others need a talking to,” Jones told ManUtd.com of the club captain.
“Since I’ve been at the club he’s been terrific with me. It’s not just on the pitch, off the pitch he’s a great lad. He’s the most normal person you will ever meet. And that is what is so humbling about him,” the in-form centre-back added.
