Man Utd boss Moyes: Jones will learn to protect himself

Manchester United boss David Moyes admits they hope Phil Jones will learn how to protect himself.

This season Jones has been injured on five different occasions, with these including foot, pelvis, knee and hip problems plus concussion, though he has still managed 30 appearances for United – including in the Community Shield – and two more for England.

Moyes said: "I think that is how he plays. He is an old-fashioned player who throws himself about and you may say: 'Why did you do that?' But that is why he has had a few injuries and been caught out a few times. We certainly don't want that to continue. We think that, with maturity, he will recognise when he should go for it and when he should stand up."
