"He’s a prime example of everything that’s wrong at Manchester United" - Paul Ince slams Jesse Lingard

"He needs to remember who he is" - Paul Ince slams Jesse Lingard

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince is furious with current Red Devils star Jesse Lingard.

Ince has launched a verbal attack on the England international, who has already faced heavy criticism for deciding to open a clothing range on the week that he and his team renewed their rivalry with Liverpool.

Both Roy Keane and Gary Neville had tough words for Lingard during the television coverage of the game which Liverpool went on to win, and now Paul Ince has offered his opinion.

Ince has held little back in his criticism of the 26-year-old winger whose ill-timed brand launch has not gone down well.

Ince told Paddy Power news: “He is simply not good enough to wear a Manchester United shirt.

“All we see on social media is his new clothing line, his dancing, trips to Las Vegas and Miami. In reality, he’s scored two goals all season.

“A player in his position has only managed two goals – but still has his own goal celebration?

“There are plenty of things you can do outside of football, like taking coaching badges, doing a degree, learning a language.

“You don’t need to make your own clothing brand as though you are one of the best stars in the world. He needs to remember who he is.”

“He’s a prime example of everything that’s wrong at Manchester United.“Romelu Lukaku looks like he’d rather be anywhere else, Anthony Martial came on and instantly lost the ball, those little details make me wonder how bothered any of them are. There are no leaders or characters left at the club.”

A different era

It didn’t stop there, either. Ince went on to criticise Lingard even further, adding that players need to have better discipline if they want to represent Manchester United. Ince added: “He’s come a long way since he couldn’t get in the Derby side. Besides, the way he plays, who would want to wear his clothing range anyway?

“I hate saying it – but he wouldn’t have got away with it in my time.“These players, when they come to United and want to be successful, should take a look at how the proper players conducted themselves.

“If you’re top of the table and you’ve got three Premier League title winners medals, a Champions League winners medal etcetera, then you can go and create your clothing brand. But he’s not.”

Ince also went on to give his thoughts on the current situation at Manchester United beyond Jesse Lingard.

Jose Mourinho has since been sacked by the Old Trafford giants, so United may already be looking to correct some of what Paul Ince, as well as others, have criticised.

However, Ince is furious with how his former club is currently operating, and he’s especially displeased with the standard of player currently wearing the Manchester United shirt. He continued: “When players like Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard are getting long-term contracts, it shows how backward they are going.

“Give them two or three-year contracts to keep them hungry, but don’t spoil them when they aren’t good enough for the club anyway.

“A resounding issue at the club is that there are far too many players who aren’t fit to wear the shirt. Something has got to give.

“It’s hard to bring in eight or nine players, and to get rid of a load, but I honestly believe that’s what they need to do to start again. Otherwise, how far are you going to let the team slip behind everyone else?”
