Widely known for his physical strength, perfect physique, and outstanding skills, the versatile and talented football player Philip Anthony Jones, also known as Phil Jones, has been nicknamed the “Jack of all trade” for his fascinating performance on the football field. The fascinating footballer acts as a defensive midfielder, playing in both centers and outside defense. Although the central defender is often described as his best position, the Mesmerizer always jumps in on the right outer defender position. His stocky build poses a threat to the opponent, who is almost impossible to outdoor over the muscle. According to Sir Alex Ferguson’s 2013 commentary, Phil, by the look of him, could well be the best player United have ever had.
Phil Jones Biography
Manchester United defender Phil Jones was born on 21 February 1992 in Preston, England. Phil is the son of Helen Jones (mother), who works as a housekeeper, and Mark Jones, who worked at British Nuclear Fuels. He has a sister called Laura who is a dancer. The football star is of English nationality and white descent. Phil’s father Mark is an avid football fan who tried his hand at the game but was unsuccessful. Phil’s father supported the Blackburn Rovers football club in his formative years and could hardly wait to grow up to take him on. According to Phil, his father’s love of Blackburn Rovers led him to support the club for the rest of his life.
Phil’s educational background can be traced back to St. Paul’s Primary in Farington, where he received his early education. While the budding star was in primary school, he lived and breathed football, he went so far as to create an artificial goalpost with his cardigan to enjoy a game of football, and even when he left primary school and went to Balshaw’s CE High School in Leyland, he continued in the same vein, playing for the Ribble Wanderers U-10 team.
Before joining Manchester United, the English professional footballer played at both youth and senior level for Blackburn Rovers, where he was used as a central defender, but can also be used as a defensive midfielder or right-back. To this day Phil Jones still plays for the English national team and the popular Premier League club Manchester United. The football star is currently part of the English senior national team and has represented his country at various levels. In 2009 Phil was in the U-19 team, but in 2010 he made his debut in the U-21 team. On 7 October 2011, the Mesmerizer played his first game for the English senior national team. He will join the team for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

His Wife, Girlfriend
The football star is currently married. Phil Jones and his long-time girlfriend Kaya Hall celebrated the wedding in a star-studded wedding that took place at her home church in Cheshire. Several well-known Manchester United teammates, including Sam Johnstone, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, West Brom’s Jonny Evans, and Wayne Rooney, were present at the ceremony. Kaya was the center of attention as she looked seductive in her beautiful white dress, while Phil looked really good in his flashy blue suit with a bow tie.
Since then the couple has lived in marital bliss and there are no rumors or controversy about them, perhaps because Kaya is as down-to-earth as her husband Phil. They first met when Kayla was a student at university and Phil was still at Blackburn. The announcement of their wedding was made on Twitter on Christmas Day and for reasons that remain to be explained, the couple immediately bought a guard dog to guard their house.
