‘It winds me up!’ – Paul Ince blasts Martial and two other Man Utd players

‘It winds me up!’ – Paul Ince blasts Martial and two other Man Utd players

Paul Ince has reportedly urged Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho and Jesse Lingard to play ‘proper football’ rather than dribbling down blind alleys and attempting ‘little flicks’ following Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to West Ham in the Carabao Cup.

He told The United Stand: ‘This wasn’t a top-notch West Ham side. Some of the players you’ve probably not even heard of! It was a time for them to say to the manager: “I’m still here!”

“How many people are ahead of Martial now? Was he going to go in the transfer window? Ole said no and he’s still part of his plans.

“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. When they’re not involved in the first-team on a Saturday, they think: “Why am I playing in the Carabao Cup?!”

“You sense that body language with Martial. He didn’t want to be out there.’

The former United and England midfielder felt Martial, Sancho and Lingard were all guilty of overcomplicating play instead of just biding their time and passing themselves into dangerous positions.

“I get that Sancho is still learning, he’s still young. But this is not FIFA game, it’s not all about dribbling and dribbling and trying to beat two, three, four players or little flicks and that,’ Ince added.

“Yeah, it’s nice when they come off but the likes of Sancho and Lingard, all these flicks, just play proper football.

“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… we just want to keep running with the ball, trying little flicks, little backheels.

“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.”
