Phil Jones and his funny face were back in the spotlight this week, but unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. The Man United defender was an unused substitute for the latest game in Manchester.
While sitting on the bench with Ed Woodward, he was caught mid gurn totally unaware by the cameraman. Top marks for the cameraman too, couldn’t have caught it at a better time!
Google and the internet are now littered with images and videos of Phil and his infamous funny face.
It’s not exactly fresh news, but just as it starts to disappear a little, he’s caught red-faced and mid-gurn once again.
Check out the classic picture below, I think this was the actual picture that started it. Amazing!!
Classic Phil Jones Funny Face
The 28-year-old also confessed in a recent interview that his close friends send him pictures of his funny face via WhatsApp late at night.
He also went on to say, it’s all just a bit of fun and games, banter between the lads! None of us takes it too seriously.
Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling joined in on the banter. After playing one night in Europe, he found some gurn pics of himself and tweeted “Phil Jones would be proud”.
Of course, it didn’t take too long before the funny images went viral, Check out all the shares and likes, poor Jonesy!
Besides, it’s good to see some banter between lads, even more so being arch-rivals on the pitch. Off the pitch looks like they like to joke around and not take things too seriously.
With all the political correctness around these days, it’s refreshing to see. I’m sure if Sir Alex Ferguson was in the dressing room, things would be slightly different.
I’m sure Phil will be having the last laugh though, a reported net worth of £18 million. A senior player at one of the biggest and most decorated clubs in the world, that will continue until 2023. Unless his contract gets extends beyond. Plenty of England caps and with a super hot girlfriend, life seems to have been rather gentle.
A solid record that will have spanned for 10 years by the time his contract expires in 2 years. Extraordinary spending 10 years at the same club this day and age, it’s an achievement itself. Plus Old Trafford hasn’t really been the steadiest of ships in recent times. Their one man-manager philosophy seemed to evaporate when Fergie retired.
