Phil Jones Attempts Overhead Kick And Somehow Manages To Concede Handball

Phil Jones Attempts Overhead Kick And Somehow Manages To Concede Handball

Manchester United defender and all-round entertainer Phil Jones has clearly been practising his overhead technique during the summer break.

The 27-year-old centre back, who is currently playing in a pre-season friendly against Norwegian side Kristiansund, gave fans in Oslo's Ullevaal Stadium a few laughs when he attempted an audacious piece of skill.

In the 10th minute of the game, Jones turned his back towards goal and flung himself in the air.

And it was all going swimmingly until his arm got in the way, deflecting his right-footed effort away from goal.

Jones, who has more Premier League titles than Steven Gerrard, will always be known more for his priceless facial expressions that his ability on the ball.

In fact, even the man himself gets sent pictures of his own face by his mates in a WhatsApp chat - and he's learned to just accept it.

"It's banter, my mates banter me all the time about it," he told Goal in an interview.

"It is what it is. I'm not too fussed about that either. My mates send me pictures every single night on the Whatsapp group taking the mick out of me. It's banter, it is what it is. It doesn't bother me."


Jones signed a new contract extension earlier this year to keep him at Old Trafford until 2023 and would be in with a shout of having a testimonial game.

However, when asked about the possibility of that happening, Jones responded hilariously.

"I wouldn't go that far, there'd be only my mum and dad who would turn up," he said.

Never change, Phil.
