Phillips' 2020-21 campaign only ended on Sunday, July 11 through England s heartbreaking defeat in the Euro 2020 final to Italy on penalties.

The Whites midfielder was then finally able to enjoy a summer break but United's 2021-22 Premier League campaign starts in just three weeks' time via the Premier League opener at Manchester United and Phillips is now braced for more hard graft in training under Whites head coach Marcelo Bielsa.

Phillips took to his social media pages on Thursday to post a series of photographs of his summer break - including alongside England colleague Ben White - and said: "It was fun while it lasted."
