Matías Martín Jones Mourigian (born 1 July 1991) is a Uruguayan footballer who currently plays for River Plate.

Club career[edit]

Jones started his career playing with Danubio FC in the Uruguayan Primera División in 2009.

In mid-2010 he was transferred to Eredivisie side FC Groningen.[2] He scored his first goal in Netherlands on the 27 April 2012 against De Graafschap. He was never able to be part of the first eleven and therefore was sent on loan to FC Emmen. In August 2013, both Groningen and Jones decided to dissolve his contract. Jones returned to Uruguay and signed a two-year contract with Defensor.


He has been capped by the Uruguay national under-20 football team for the 2011 South American Youth Championship and for the pre-squad for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
