Man Utd defender Jones: ​Solskjaer has restored Ferguson buzz

Phil Jones believes that a "buzz" has been restored at Manchester United.

The Red Devils have impressed since appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace Jose Mourinho in December.

And Jones believes the buzz that was around the club when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge is back.

"I definitely feel the same sort of vibe about the place," Jones told reporters after a stuttering 2-1 win at home over Watford.

"The same... the same buzz. The same... I don't know, like you can't really put your finger on it.

"But you can see similarities in that stage between now and back then. It's nice, it's refreshing and we're all enjoying it.

"It didn't matter whether it [Solskjaer signing a full-time contract] was last month, this month, next month, end of the season.

"I think we understand exactly what he wants, what he wants from us and vice-versa and it works.

"The players are enjoying their football. It's exciting, we're moving in the right direction. We've got some great footballers here. We want to learn and improve and get better and we will do."
