Manchester United fullback Phil Jones has admitted that club head coach Jose Mourinho has given all the players – including those who were frozen out under Louis van Gaal last season – “a lot of confidence”.
“He has given everyone a lot of confidence, including players who perhaps weren’t playing as many minutes last season. You see it in training, you see it in games. If you are enjoying your football, you see it on the pitch,” – he told Sky Sports News.
“I knew at the start of the season it would be hard for me because I had been out last season but it was up to me to change that. He gave me the belief to go do it. I feel good and am willing to fight for the cause.”
