‘Star’ Jones can be captain – Nev

Neville, born in Bury, is a lifelong United fan and retired

mid-season earlier this year after making 602 appearances for the

Old Trafford club. Jones, 19, agreed a five-year contract after

Blackburn agreed an undisclosed transfer fee last month, and

Neville is predicting a bright future. “I think this lad’s going to

be a star, I really do,” the former England full-back told

Singapore’s The New Paper. “I think he’s going to be somebody who

could potentially be a captain of Manchester United in the future.

“He looks really solid and he’s somebody who can be a huge player

for the club for the next 10 years. “There’s a lot of potential

there and the performances he’s put in over the last two years have

been outstanding, particularly against us. “For a 19-year-old

that’s excellent. He’s a great signing for us.”
