Missing the start of the new season with an injured right leg, Jones made his return to Champions League football in Manchester United's loss to Galatasaray in the previous match day, and he took his place in the starting line-up once more in the Red Devils' final group match-up with CFR Cluj.
However, the Englishman ended up on the losing side again, when Luis Alberto scored a stunning winner midway through the second half to wrap up all three points for the Romanian side.
Speaking to MUTV after the game, Jones was perplexed as to why his team were not able to put away an equalizer during the last 45 minutes.
"We were probably missing a little bit of urgency in the first half, but I think we had that in the second half," he noted.
"Cluj were difficult to break down but we created enough chances, enough to win two games, and we put enough balls into the box. We just couldn’t stick our chances away while it was unfortunate they scored a wonder goal."
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson deployed the 20-year old at right back against Cluj, but Jones revealed that he preferred to play in the centre of defence.
"That's up to the manager. I’ve always said I prefer centre-back but I’m happy to play wherever I’m asked," he stated.
Manchester United's next game sees them travel to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City in their highly anticipated derby clash.
