Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed today that defender Phil Jones has returned to first team training and will join the Manchester United squad as they travel to Turkey to face Galatasaray for their midweek Champions League match.
Sir Alex said
Phil Jones has been training all week. We will take him to Turkey with us. He’ll get part of it there, which is a good start for him.
Jones has not featured for Manchester United all season as he recovered from a knee injury which he picked up as he returned from a back injury which had ruled him out of the season start.
In other Manchester United news, Robin van Persie is likely to feature for the side despite missing the Netherlands friendly midweek while Wayne Rooney is still a doubt.
Sir Alex added
We’ve still got some doubts about Wayne and Jonny Evans. I think Robin should be fit. We’ll see what they are like today but there is a doubt.
