Manchester United’s new boy Jadon Sancho has found himself in the firing line of Red Devils legend Paul Ince.
Sancho arrived in Manchester from Borussia Dortmund over the summer for almost £80million, but his arrival was immediately overshadowed by United’s acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, Ince hasn’t been impressed by the English winger following his arrival to Old Trafford.
Ince was a big part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s United in the early 1990s, and he spent six years in the red half of Manchester.
But he has called out Sancho’s ‘showboating’ after United were eliminated from the Carabao Cup in the week.
“I get that Sancho is still learning, he’s still young,” Ince vented to The United Stand.
“But this is not a FIFA game, it’s not all about dribbling and trying to beat two, three, four players or little flicks and that.
“Yeah, it’s nice when they come off but the likes of Sancho and Lingard, all these flicks, just play proper football.”
Sancho wasn’t the only player in Ince’s firing line, and he also blasted Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial for similar reasons.
“Honestly, it winds me up! If you watch players like [Ryan] Giggs, they get it and they pass, one-twos and get one-on-one.” he continued.
“We just want to keep running with the ball.
“That’s what I saw with Martial, I saw it at times with Lingard and with Sancho and that’s where they need to learn that it’s not all about dribbling.
“Sometimes you can pass your way through players and get yourself in the box.”
Ince saved his most scathing comments for the Frenchman as he questioned his commitment to United.
“I just looked at Martial’s body language and I was thinking, ‘Does he actually want to be out there on a Wednesday night?’, and some players do that.
“You sense that body language with Martial. He didn’t want to be out there.”
