Man Utd defender Jones welcomes Capello tipping him for England captaincy

Manchester United defender Phil Jones is delighted with the praise coming his way from England coach Fabio Capello.

Capello considers him a future England captain and in his first major interview on senior duty he gave a fine demonstration of why.

On and off the pitch, this teenager has a touch of class about him.

"For the manager to say that is a brilliant feeling," he said. "Hopefully I can get there one day."
