Manchester United fans have the right to boo players, admits Jones

Ryan Giggs suffered his first defeat in temporary charge as Sunderland ran out 1-0 winners on Saturday - and the 22-year-old insists supports are right to voice their disapproval
Phil Jones believes Manchester United fans had the right to boo the players after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Sunderland.
4/1 Juan Mata is 4/1 with William Hill to score first against Hull City on Tuesday

Ryan Giggs suffered his first loss in temporary charge at Old Trafford as Sebastian Larsson’s first-half strike secured a vital victory for Gus Poyet’s men.

Some United supporters left Old Trafford before the final whistle, while the team’s performance was jeered by others who stayed until the end of the game.

When asked if the fans had the right to voice their disapproval, Jones replied: "Yeah, of course.

"You can understand that totally. They have had a difficult season. It has not been easy for them, especially here at Old Trafford.

"It's the story of our season isn't it? You win one, but you can't carry the form on. It's disappointing."

United face Hull City in their final home game of the campaign on Tuesday and Jones has urged his team-mates to bow out on a positive note.

"We can't afford to make it flat," said the 22-year-old.

"We have to lift ourselves again and put in the same work rate in training and go again. That's all you can do.

"We want to win every game for the fans.

“For whatever reason that's not been the case, but hopefully we can do that on Tuesday."
