Man United ace aims hilarious dig at keyboard warriors abusing him from “their mum’s spare bedroom”

Posted by

Forgotten Manchester United ace Phil Jones has slammed the keyboard warriors sending him abuse, insisting that he knows he’ll have the last laugh.

The 29-year-old has completely fallen out of the first-team picture at Man Utd in recent times and is now considered something of a figure of fun by most football fans.

This is despite Jones initially looking like a hugely promising young talent when he first moved to Old Trafford from Blackburn Rovers back in the summer of 2011.

Jones made a great start to life at United under Sir Alex Ferguson, who tipped the England international to become one of the club’s all-time greats.

Things certainly haven’t worked out that way for Jones, who hasn’t made a single appearance for the Red Devils this season, and who only played eight matches in all competitions last term.

It looks like a long way back into the team for Jones, but the player himself has sent a clear message to those who mock and abuse him.

“Every footballer has a tag and unfortunately mine is, ‘Let’s have a laugh at him’,” Jones told the Times.

“But — and I say this in the nicest possible way — I know who’ll have the last laugh.

“I’m proud of my career and when it finishes and I’m enjoying my life — and by the way I’m super fortunate that I’ll be able to do that, because footballers are fortunate — [the keyboard warriors] will still be in their mum’s spare bedroom, sipping Diet Pepsi that’s flat, eating a Pot Noodle, sitting in their boxers, tweeting.”

Fair play to Jones for putting the haters in their place!
