Man Utd ace Jones: The best defender I've played with... (you'll never guess!)

Manchester United defender Phil Jones admits former Blackburn Rovers skipper Ryan Nelsen had the biggest influence on his game.

Jones was asked in a fans' Q&A the best defender he's played with.

He told manutd.com: "I've been lucky to have played with a lot of really good defenders already, so obviously the likes of Rio Ferdinand or Nemanja Vidic have to be up there.

"But even when I go back to my Blackburn days, I learned a lot from playing with Ryan Nelsen. He was a great defender, a leader and it was really beneficial for me to play alongside him."
