Neville sees Jones as future Man Utd captain

Manchester United legend Gary Neville sees Phil Jones as a future club captain.

Former United skipper Neville, who retired last season, believes defender Jones - a £16million buy from Blackburn - has the leadership qualities to lead the team at Old Trafford.

"I think this lad's going to be a star, I really do," said Neville.

"I think he's going to be somebody who could potentially be a captain of Manchester United in the future.

"He looks really solid and he's somebody who can be a huge player for the club for the next 10 years.

"There's a lot of potential there and the performances he's put in over the last two years have been outstanding, particularly against us.

"For a 19-year-old that's excellent. He's a great signing for us."
