EPL: Dunn advises Ten Hag not to trade Man Utd star because “he brings a great mentality”

David Dunn, a former Blackburn Rovers midfielder, has pleaded with Erik ten Hag, manager of Manchester United, not to offload defender Phil Jones this summer.

Jones, 30, offers a positive mentality to Manchester United, according to Dunn, who wants Ten Hag to keep him there.

Given his career-long injury issues, Jones has struggled to get game time at Man United in recent seasons.

He made eight appearances last season, breaking down in tears after a 1-0 loss to Wolves in January, his first game in 708 days.

According to Dunn, who spoke to The Sun, “there are occasions when other players might not go out and give their all. That is never the case with him.”

That is why Jones has had injuries, but I view that mentality as a positive and, as a coach, I would want that in my locker room, the speaker continued. The same will likely be thought by Ten Hag.

“I know he’s been hurt, but despite all the issues, he is still only 30 and doesn’t forget, so he doesn’t have the miles on his legs,” the speaker said.
