Man Utd boss Ferguson enthuses: Jones could be anything

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with Phil Jones' performance in defeat to Manchester City.

Ferguson felt he had a contender for the game's best player in Jones, who was outstanding in central defence.

"Phil was magnificent," he said.

"He has only played two games at centre-back this season. That tells you what a good player he is.

"The boy could be anything. At 21 he is a man."
