Phil Jones has taken to social media to reveal his excitement at trying out his latest pair of football boots as the Manchester United star bids to return from injury as soon as possible.

Defender Jones is currently sidelined with an ankle injury and was spotted in the stands at Anfield as Manchester United secured a 1-0 win over Liverpool last weekend.

Louis van Gaal confirmed on Friday that Jones would sit out Saturday’s Premier League clash with Southampton at Old Trafford due to injury.

However, the England international seems to be keeping himself in good spirits as he works on his fitness ahead of a return to action.

Jones posted the picture above of his latest pair of boots on Instagram on Friday afternoon and wrote: “Looking forward to getting back and trying these out! #ace16 #bethedifference”
