Ex-Manchester United forward, Paul Ince has picked on the club’s attackers, saying their styles of football “wind him up.”
He dressed down the likes of Jesse Lingard, Jadon Sancho, and Anthony Martial, the club’s forwarders.
The censure followed United’s defeat at the hands of West Ham during the 3rd round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
Solskjaer had fielded the trio upfront as he made wholesale changes to his side for the EPL Cup clash with the Hammers.
Instead of the trio frustrating the defense of the visiting team and find an equalizer, by all means, they were so lazy and did nothing impressive.
The loss has, however, ensured their elimination from competing further in the EPL Cup.
Ince, who also played for Liverpool and Inter Milan, berated Martial, Sancho, and Lingard over opting for style-over-substance kind of football.
The Old Trafford hero also exemplified Ryan Giggs’s football style.
“I get that Sancho is still learning, he’s still young. But this is not a FIFA game, it’s not all about dribbling and dribbling and trying to beat two, three, four players or little flicks and that,” he told The United Stand.
“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 back-heels.”
“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.”
