Manchester United defender Phil Jones is desperate to make up for lost time.

Jones' progress has stalled following a succession of troublesome injuries.

"It has not been a great season for me," said Jones, who was speaking at a Q&A session at Old Trafford to promote United's new global partnership with Japanese paint manufacturer Kansai.

"I picked up a few injuries and had a few setbacks, so it's been really frustrating because I am a nightmare patient.

"But I feel fit and strong now, and hopefully I can get a good run in the side and finish the season off well.

"The reason you come to Manchester United is to play in big games every week.

"As well as league games and FA Cup matches, we've got two massive games coming up against Real Madrid.

"They are all matches that, if I'm involved, I will relish."
