  • [4] Gary Pallister is a fan of Jones and Smalling and thinks United have good centre backs

    “I think if you look at both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones both arrived at the club and settled into things really well at centre-half,”

    “Then they were moved, Phil into midfield and right-back and Smalling has played an awful lot of games at right-back so they haven’t played in the middle that often at a time when they’re still learning the position.

    “At such a young age and I’d like to see them get a run of games.

    “I’ve been through that period in my career when I first came to Old Trafford. I got a bit of stick but luckily I was given the time to get through that and prove myself.

    “I look at those two young lads and the way they’ve had to change positions and I feel sorry for them. I think they have the skills and attributes to be top class defenders for Manchester United.

    “Don’t forget United also have Jonny Evans. Sir Alex trusted him when Vidic was out and Rio was struggling with his back and I don’t think he ever really let him down,”

    “I think he is a top class player and I think given time and more games Smalling and Jones can fill that gap but he I still think he (van Gaal) possibly needs one more experienced centre-half.”
