- Phil Jones has made it clear that Manchester United were a laughing stock under Jose Mourinho

Phil Jones has explained that Manchester United were a laughing stock under former manager Jose Mourinho who was fired in December 2018 for poor results.
Jones added that the Old Trafford club are now in their best form following their unbeaten run of games since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over from Mourinho.
Solskjaer has boosted the morale of all Manchester United players who remain unbeaten under him with their last game a win against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
England international Phil Jones has now explained how things have changed in the last few weeks under Solskjaer who is currently United boss on interim capacity.
"Everyone’s got to take us seriously now.
"We might have been a bit of a laughing stock at the beginning of the season, but we’re certainly not now.
''We’ve proven that in the last ten or twelve games. We’re improving, we’re still getting better,'' Jones explained according to the news by Manchester Evening.
The 26-year-old also responded to Manchester United's win against Fulham which sent the Red Devils to fourth position on the Premier League standings.
"It was tough for everyone involved. The club, the supporters, everyone. But it’s about becoming stronger and seeing that through.
''I’ve said it in the past, we’ve not achieved anything yet, we’re under no illusions but we’re heading in the right direction,'' he said.
Phil Jones and his teammates are now planning for their next game which will be in the Champions League against French club Paris-Saint-Germain.
