Uefa claim Manchester United defender Phil Jones used the f-word more than five times at a doping control officer after the Europa League final.

Jones and Daley Bling were both given penalties after May’s Europa League final win over Ajax, Jones was fined and banned for two European games, while Blind was fined £4,475.

He’s already missed the Super Cup final after he was angered at having to miss the post-match celebrations in Stockholm.

Graham Stringer, MP for Blackley and Broughton, wrote to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin for clarification.

“The first player from Manchester United, Phil Jones, came to the DCS (doping control station) and was very upset that he had to be in the DCS,” UEFA’s head of president office, Luka Zajc, wrote.

“He wanted to leave the DCS to celebrate with the team but I told him that he had to do the sampling first.

“He then told me I was a f***** doing this and that I had a f****** job and how I could be so f****** stupid to consider having such a f****** job.

“I told him that this was the UEFA regulations and that my job was to do the control. He still continued to tell me I had a f****** job and how I even could do that job.

“I then asked him to calm down and stop insulting me and then he said he didn’t want to talk to me anymore.

“I trust that you can understand that, even if a player is frustrated or upset, he has to respect the work of the competition officials who are carrying out doping tests.”
