Phil Jones: Man United supporters right to boo the players
Manchester United defender Phil Jones says the supporters have every right to boo the players
Phil Jones admits the Manchester United supporters have “every right” to boo the players after a surprise 1-0 loss to Sunderland.
Interim manager Ryan Giggs led the 20-time English champions to a 4-0 victory over Norwich in his first game in charge, but the 40-year-old was powerless to prevent the Red Devils succumbing to the Black Cats.
It’s the story of our season isn’t it? You win one, but you can’t carry the form on
United have suffered 12 Premier League losses this season, with a staggering seven coming at Old Trafford – and Jones can understand why the Red Devils fans made their discontent clear on Saturday.
“Of course they had every right to do that,” Jones is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“You can understand that totally. They have had a difficult season. It has not been easy for them, especially here at Old Trafford.
“It’s the story of our season isn’t it? You win one, but you can’t carry the form on. It’s disappointing.”
Jones added that United must improve their home form next season after a difficult season for the 20-time English champions.
“We are up at the top of the table on away form, but the home form for whatever reason has not been as good,2 Jones said.
“It’s caught us out and that’s something next season we really nail down and work on.”
