Phil Jones is happy to end his Manchester United season on a high after the start of the campaign was hit by injuries.
Jones, who is still only 21 missed the first three-months of campaign with problems with his lower back and also his knee.
Many will remember Jones putting in a great permormance man-marking former red Cristiano Ronaldo in the first-leg against Real Madrid, but an ankle injury ruled him out of the return leg at Old Trafford.
Th ankle injury damage was caused in a dangerous challenge from Reading’s Jobi McAnuf.
Speaking with Inside United, Jones said:
“It was a silly tackle.
“I probably should have looked after myself a bit more. I will learn from it as an experienced head would probably not have done that. It is in me. I like making tackles. I like defending.
“I was gutted to miss the Real second leg. I tried everything to make the game.
“It has been frustrating. Certainly at the start of the season. It was tough as I had a back injury and then, in the first or second training session back, I injured my knee again.
“It was kind of one thing after the next and I felt like ‘is this sort of thing going to end?’
Thankfully, I got over that and played in quite a few games and I think I’ve done reasonably well towards the back end of the season.”
