Manchester United defender Phil Jones has lots of appreciation for Everton manager Sam Allardyce, a coach he insists he will always be grateful to.
Jones played under Allardyce during the manager's time at Blackburn, and got his chance in the team. That ultimately led to United signing him for a fee believed to be £16.5m.
Allardyce, who has a reputation for getting teams out of trouble, has already turned things around at Everton since coming in. And Jones is quite impressed.
"Wherever he's gone throughout his career, he's always gotten results that he needed and that's why Everton brought him in," the defender told Sky Sports.
Jones will go up against his old boss when the Red Devils play against Everton at Goodison Park on Monday, and it will certainly be interesting to see how they fare.
