Jones Sidelined

Jones Sidelined

The troubled season Phil Jones is experiencing seems set to continue.

Having already missed large chunks of it through injury, Jones has been sent home from the England U21 camp after it was revealed he`d been suffering from shingles.

The infection, known as adult chicken-pox, is caused by the herps zoster virus and could take a month to clear.

The immediate concerns, within the Manchester United camp, are that Jones will not be available for the forthcoming Champions League clash with Real Madrid, a game where Sir Alex Ferguson would like as many of his players as possible to be available for selection.

Speaking about Jones having to withdraw from the U21 squad, Stuart Pearce has commented,

"It`s a shame. You want your good players to be here."

"But Phil has picked up shingles and there`s not a lot we can do about it."


Quite ironic that Sir Alex lambasted his selection for the U21 squad believing that he should have been in the full squad.

You don't really pick up shingles Stuart. It's part of contracting chicken pox once you had it the virus sits dormant in your system for the unfortunate few that can result in a outbreak. Poor lad I've heard it can be quite painful. Had to correct one of the lads from work though he seem to have it confused with the mumps and felt it necessary to proclaim he'll never have kid's. I gave up at this point

Should've just talked to the wall MotorMad you would've got more sense out of it. Heard shingles is horrible but here's hoping jones a speedy recovery. Despite his assertions that he's a CB still think his primary role when he's not covering for everyone all over the pitch is a holding mid who shields the back four and supports the attack.
