Manchester United fans want Phil Jones to retire after latest performance

After a large number of changes at Old Trafford, Manchester United fans are rightly eager for the new Premier League season to get underway.

They want to see Jose Mourinho in action on the touchline and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly on the pitch. By the time the season kicks off, they could also be looking forward to seeing Paul Pogba.

But despite the raft of exciting developments at the Red Devils, so far it seems to be the same old story. Their pre-season friendly against Borussia Dortmund may only be 45 minutes gone but Mourinho's men were truly uninspiring and went into the dressing room 2-0 down.

And, just to make sure Manchester United fans hit reality hard, there is also an awful performance from Phil Jones to talk about. Indeed, a number of Twitter users have vented their anger on the unfortunate centre-back, who spent much of last season on the sidelines with an injury.

While Jones may have recovered from his latest significant ailment, it appears he has plenty of rust to shake off. The 24-year-old notably struggled to contain the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Some fans are being nice, some are being nasty and others are being damn well ridiculous in their assessment of the former Blackburn star. We have tried to piece together a broad selection for you to enjoy.

Here it is:

At least he's got one admirer

Mkhitaryan regret

And Henrikh Mkhitaryan's performance against his former club has not gone unnoticed. The Armenian was far from terrible in the first 45 minutes but was left completely isolated on the wing.

Many are wondering whether he's regretting his transfer.

Luckily, he came alive in the second half and scored what is likely to be a consolation goal for Manchester United. The score at the time of publishing is 3-1 to Dortmund.
