Manchester United's Asia tour excites Phil Jones

Manchester United's Phil Jones expresses his excitement ahead of the club's summer tour to Asia.

Phil Jones has admitted that he is looking forward to Manchester United's pre-season tour of Asia.

The Premier League leaders will travel to the Far East for matches in Hong Kong and Japan, before heading to Australia for a match against an A-League select team.

Having discussed the trip with fellow defender and teammate Rio Ferdinand, Jones has revealed that he cannot wait to give something back to the club's supporters.

"From what Rio was saying, the fanbase is absolutely huge out there, and that makes it exciting for us to go over there and experience it, and for the fans to see us as well," he told the club's official website. "It's important to give something back to those fans and show our support to them.

"When I met up with the squad for the first time [in 2011] it was definitely an eye opener for me to see how big United is as a club. I already knew it was a massive club, but I didn't realise just how big the fanbase was.

"There were people queuing up outside our hotel just to catch glimpses of us which was kind of surreal, but it was a great experience."

Meanwhile, Jones is currently on the sidelines with shingles.
