After the match, Man United fans savagely trolled De Ligt for the inadvertent mistake, claiming that he is the ‘Dutch Phil Jones.’ The Red Devils’ fans stated that the 19-year-old’s fate has been switched with Phil Jones, who is one of the most underrated players at Old Trafford.

I think De Ligt signing for Juventus was a blessing in disguise. We already have Phil Jones scoring for the opposition when he wants we can’t be wasting £70m on another one

De Ligt is overrated. Phil Jones the real GOAT.

Phil Jones > De Ligt… Thank God we didn’t buy him… I won’t be shocked many United fans will be saying this! The state of fans we have!

De Ligt exploded into the forefront of football after a majestic season in the Eredivisie where he captained Ajax to a league title and an unlikely Champions League semi-final.
De Ligt was hauled off at half-time for prospect Merih Demiral, who also came on off the bench against Tottenham.
