Jones admits being intimidated in early days at Man Utd

Phil Jones admits he was intimidated when first joining Manchester United.

Jones admits first stepping into the Old Trafford dressing room was a daunting prospect, but the faith of manager Sir Alex Ferguson helped ease him in.

He said: "There is definitely a bit of personal intimidation.

"You always raise the question to yourself. Am I good enough to be here?

"The manager has shown that faith in me. Hopefully I have repaid it.

"I found it relatively easy to adjust though, because at Blackburn I always saw myself as a player who likes to get the ball down, which is what United love to do."
