Manchester United defender Phil Jones has addressed fans in an emotional message, thanking them for the outpouring of love he received after announcing his departure from the club.

Last month it was announced that our long-standing no.4 will leave United at the conclusion of his contract this summer.

The 31-year-old signed under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2011 and, along with David De Gea, is our longest-serving player in the current squad.

“I want to express my thanks to everyone who has shown love and support to me over the last week,” he wrote on social media.

“I’ve always known how special the United fanbase is but this week has brought home to me how special you all are.

“I hope you all enjoy the FA Cup final this weekend, I’ll be supporting the lads from the stands and backing them to win just as much as you.”

Fans continued to show their support in the comments, with one writing “Always a Red! Thanks for everything!”

Another said: “Can’t wait to see you back on the pitch. Wherever you play, we will always support you. Once a Red, forever a Red.”

Former team-mate Juan Mata, who clinched the Turkish league title with Galatasaray earlier this week, also left a comment, simply saying: “Jonaaaaa ❤️”

We’ll look forward to seeing you at Wembley, Phil!
