Manchester United manager José Mourinho has publicly criticised the England national team for fielding Phil Jones against Germany last Friday.
The United manager said that the centre-back, who went off after 25 minutes in that encounter, will not be fit to face Newcastle at Old Trafford in GW12. Jones, who has been a mainstay in United's first choice XI this season, had been hampered by a thigh complaint prior to the international break which had forced him off early in the loss to Huddersfield. Mourinho said that Jones was still carrying that injury when he played an hour against Chelsea in GW11. Mourinho was cynical in his own self-appraisal for allowing Jones go on duty, bemoaning the fact that he was "naive" and "too pure" compared to other managers who had many key men withdraw.
