Phil Jones’ £165k yellow Lamborghini splattered with mud as Man Utd stars arrive for training ahead of Watford clash

By | 22nd February 2020

PHIL JONES’ yellow Lamborghini was among the wealth of expensive motors at risk as Manchester United stars drove through the mud into training on Saturday.

With a dirty great puddle standing between the players and their Carrington base, the squad ploughed on through ahead of the weekend match-up with Watford.

Of course, forking out the £12 required for a silver service down the car wash would be pennies for anyone who can afford a £165,000 Lambo.

And after not even making the bench for United‘s disappointing draw in midweek, Jones is one of many players hoping to earn a chance if the line-up is rotated for Sunday’s game.

The 2pm kick-off could see the return of Scott McTominay after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer intimated the Scot is getting back to full fitness.

Without the midfielder since Boxing Day due to a ligament issue, the boss said McTominay “might” be back for Sunday’s clash.

Mason Greenwood is also a doubt after missing Thursday’s draw at Club Brugge with illness while the trio of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are all unavailable.

Ahead of the Premier League matchday, the Red Devils were sat just three points off fourth-place after a vital win away to Chelsea.

But that draw in Belgium has cut back their momentum amid a massive run of games.

Next week’s return leg will likely require Solskjaer to play a stronger team than he might have hoped, days before a trip to Everton.

Derby then lie in wait in the FA Cup before games with Manchester City, Tottenham and Sheffield United in the race for the Champions League.
