Man Utd boss Ferguson: Jones will be better than Chelsea's Terry

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson feels Phil Jones can surpass the achievements of Chelsea captain John Terry.

Jones, a £16.5million buy from Blackburn, was outstanding in midfield for United at Spurs last week.

And Fergie said: "Jones has got more in his locker than John.

"Terry has got the ­experience and has become a fantastic central figure at Chelsea.

"But as a young player, John would be the first to admit he didn't have the pace of Phil Jones.

"Phil is a ­versatile boy, he can play anywhere. He's quick, two-footed, reads games well and is competitive.

"He's doing very well."
