Phil Jones: Players' commitment not in doubt

Moyes was sacked as United boss on Tuesday, just 10 months into a six-year contract, amid rumours of a breakdown in his relationship with some members of the squad.

But Jones denied claims that the squad had shirked their responsibilities on the pitch under Moyes.

"That was never the case," said Jones.

"Players don't go out on the football pitch to lose games. That is ridiculous.

"Everyone wants to win every game at this club. That accusation is hurtful.

"It's not happened for whatever reason but we need to move on quickly and end the season well."

Moyes made no mention of his players in the statement he issued following his dismissal, fuelling the speculation about who he blamed for his departure.

"On behalf of the lads we thank David Moyes for the work he put in for us all," added Jones.

"He is a nice man and we wish him all the best.

"We are sorry he has lost his job and probably we didn't get some of the results that we would have liked to for him but that's football."
