Manchester United defender Phil Jones knows he's fortunate to have worked for Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson recently suggested Jones had the ability to become the greatest player in United's history.

Responding to that, the England international said: "It makes me feel bigger. I admire the comments but it doesn't stop there, you have to keep playing and as long as I play the way I have I'm sure things will be good."

He added of Ferguson: "He's a fantastic manager, everyone knows that, you can't speak highly enough of him but what he's done for me personally has been fantastic and I can't thank him enough."
