Evidently, Manchester United have experienced a resurgence after the caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December.

United have won 10 of the Norwegian’s 11 matches in charge, becoming United’s first manager of the month since Sir Alex Ferguson and favorite to get the job permanently.

The side’s 3-0 win against Fulham moves them into the top four for the first time since the opening weekend of the season.

This led to United’s defender believing that the team was a “laughing stock” under Jose Mourinho and that the Red Devils are “now heading in the right direction” with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm.

Asked if it was a big psychological boost to be in fourth, Jones, who signed a new four-year deal with United this week, said, “Yeah, huge.

“Everyone’s got to take us seriously now.

“We might have been a bit of a laughing stock at the beginning of the season but we’re certainly not now. We’ve proven that in the last 10 or 12 games. We’re improving, we’re still getting better.”

“It was tough for everyone involved. The club, the supporters, everyone. But it’s about becoming stronger and seeing that through,” he added.

“I’ve said it in the past, we’ve not achieved anything yet, we’re under no illusions but we’re heading in the right direction.”

“We knew we could get into the top four. It’s a big statement from where we were. We just need to keep improving and keep picking up points,” he added.

“Consistency is key in any sport and it’s no different here. We’re putting a run together, we need to keep momentum going and pick up points. It’s a tough period coming up, but these are the games you want to play in, the games you want to be available for. Bring it on!”

To most United supporters, the club’s current position seemed almost impossible during the dark days of Mourinho.
