Ranknik included Phil Jones in the Champions League squad
The manager of Manchester United has decided to include defender Phil Jones in the Champions League elimination squad. As it is known, the Red Devils will face Atletico Madrid in this phase of the race.
All clubs got a chance to make up to three changes in their lineups after the winter transfer window. Amad Diallo, Donnie van de Beek and Anthony Marcial, who were hired, dropped out of the Red Devils' group. They were replaced by Phil Joss and Lee Grant.
After nearly three seasons in which he was haunted by injuries and almost did not appear in the game, recently Jones is increasingly falling into the group of United. He was the starter of the match with Wolverhampton, and also appeared in the game against Middlesbrough for the FA Cup. It seems that the 29-year-old defender is beginning to gain the trust of Ralph Rangnik.
At this stage, it seems unlikely that Jones will be among the starters in the first match with Atletico. The last match of the defender in the Champions League was on April 16, 2019 against Barcelona (0: 3).
Manchester United Group: De Gea, Henderson, Heaton, Grant, Kovar, Lindelof, Bayeux, Jones, Maguire, Varane, Dalot, Shaw, Teles, One-Bissaka, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Fred, Fernandes, Sancho McTomini, Ronaldo, Rashford, Cavani
Additional list of teenagers: Mengi, Hardley, Greenwood, Elanga, Shortyre, Maybri, Wellness, Savage, Iqbal, Mater.
