What is said?
Jones told United’s official club podcasts after being something forgotten: “I felt good at that time.
“Obviously, I have passed hell and returned for the past few years. I struggled with my knees a little and [there] appeared one point after the kuncian where I thought was enough.
“I held myself in great condition over the stall and returned. But I remember just practicing here [Carrington] and went to the document and said ‘Enough’ enough ‘. Unfortunately, there will be a leave from the field, which I know will be difficult for me, But it is something I have to do.
“Fortunately, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel now, and I have returned to practice, playing some games behind-door and I feel very good at this time.
“It’s very good to return to practicing with young people and enjoy being a soccer player again because for the past 15 months, all ‘daycare daycare’ and not many football.”

He was only related to a contract of up to 2023, and faced fierce competition for places from people like Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane, but were determined to maximize the pain of free and ready to compete for competitive minutes once more.
Jones added: “[already] tough. I think as a soccer player, as a person, as a human, that’s the lowest I might feel in my life.
“You tried and got a balance between the life of football and family but it was very difficult home and tried to take care of children. You are there, but you are not there, you’re not present. It’s fun to get it to balance again.
“At first I thought, I would be honest, I felt very difficult to watch football, only in general because you can’t do anything. You jammed, you from your feet. Enter the land every day, it’s hard to leave because you will come out so long and I know that getting an operation.
“But fortunately, I have a good team around me, family, friends, and I passed it.”
