Sinclair said TalkSPORTOf course he (Jones) will accept (the new contract). Perhaps he has aspirations to join the first team.

I don’t see a bad egg, I look at him, I think he looks like a good professional, he won’t cause a lot of problems, he has a family, he has kids, he needs to try to increase the amount of funding he earns in his career.

‘Why does he reject the Manchester United contract? I think the only people to criticize are the people who offered him the contract because he didn’t work out again.

For Rio to come out and criticize him and say he should leave the club and reserve the chance for an academy player to join the first team, I’m not happy with Rio about that, I think he crossed the line for me.”

Jones has two years left on his £130,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford and is eager to rebuild his United career. Despite spending most of his United career at the injury table, the Red Devils hierarchy offered Jones a four-year contract extension in 2019, keeping him tied to Old Trafford until 2023.

However, his chances of reclaiming a regular starting point are slim following the £42m arrival of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid and Ferdinand called time on his former teammate’s stay at Old Trafford.

“He is holding the position of one of the youth team players on this team now,” Ferdinand said. Atmosphere with FIVE.

“He’s had a lot of injuries… I was on the same team as Phil Jones, he came from Blackburn when he was a little kid, and everyone was saying he’d be such a great player.

“The potential is huge but injuries have completely killed his career and then confidence issues at certain times as well.

He was never able to fully establish himself in the team. Whether it’s injuries, lack of form or lack of confidence. I think he should have gone a long time ago. He should have gone before Chris Smalling went. Find a new club and play football.

Ferdinand added: “He has lacked consistency throughout his career at Man United. It is a fact, for all the reasons I mentioned before.

“I’m perplexed about how he got a new deal at the club given the last few years he’s been at the club. It doesn’t make sense to me how he gets a new deal.

I remember that day you had to do some graft to get a new deal. You have to give performances, you have to be a vital member of the team. Phil Jones is not.

You have done well. Listen, good luck to him if you can get by. Staying at Man United is great business, but I look at it as a person, would you really be happy to be sitting there all this year?

‘I suspect [Danny] Drinking water was a little the same [at Chelsea]. It is very easy to sit a little and hide behind the curtains.

To be fair to Phil Jones, I haven’t seen him come out and talk and explain, he may have had injuries we don’t know about. But if he’s fit and he stays sitting as he was, signs a new contract and stays and doesn’t go out on loan… that’s not what the footballer wants.

“There are players who are happy to just sit and club and not play and relax. Winston Bogard did it at Chelsea for three or four years. I signed a big deal and relaxed from Holland.

If I was on the team with someone like this, I wouldn’t talk to them. They are a waste of time, so why am I talking to you and giving you any energy, taking that away from my other teammates who are here to play and battle for 90 minutes every week.
