United defender Jones was an unused sub for the 2016 FA Cup final win over Crystal Palace and was sidelined with injury for last season’s EFL Cup final triumph.
England international Jones was part of United’s squad for the Europa League final last season, but remained on the bench for the 2-0 win over Ajax, while a two-game ban ruled him out of the Super Cup against Real Madrid last August.
“The one under Van Gaal, I wasn’t playing, so that was okay,” said Jones. “Not okay, but reasonable.
“The Europa League final, I got a daft, silly injury at a stupid time.
“I thought I wouldn’t be fit for the final, then it came and I was, but the manager is probably thinking I’d only just come back, could he trust my fitness in a game of that magnitude?
“You’re disappointed but, at the same time, you understand.
“Hopefully I have a chance of starting in the final. I don’t know. It’s the manager’s decision.
“But hopefully I’ve put my name forward and will be one of the names on the teamsheet.”
