Paul Ince: “Jadon Sancho Is Still Learning”
Paul Ince criticized the attacking duo after Man Utd’s disappointing home defeat at West Ham.
A little about the topic
Former darling Old Trafford told 21-year-old winger Jadon Sancho £ 73m that English football is not FIFA, while aiming at Martial after the Red Devils left the Carabao Cup. The Utd were kicked out of the competition in the third round on Wednesday after a 1-0 home defeat to West Ham, just three days from their 2-1 win over the Hammers in the Premier League – which Jadon Sancho started on the bench.
The 21-year-old returned at the start of the XI Solskjaer mid-week but produced another ineffective show on the right flank and Paul Ince now criticized him for focusing more on the trendy running board than getting involved with his teammates in the final third.
What did Paul Ince say?
The former Man Utd winger also felt that Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard were at times guilty of the showboat, as Paul Ince said he understands that Jadon Saoncho is still learning, he is still young. But this is not a FIFA game, it is not all about dribbling and dribbling and trying to beat two, three, four players or little swings and then.
Yes, it’s nice when they come out, but the likes of Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho, all these flicks, are just playing the right football. Honestly, this turns Paul Ince up! If you watch players like Giggs, they get it and they go one-two and get one-on-one … they just want to keep running with the ball trying little shenanigans, little rear wheels.
According to Paul Ince this is what he saw with Anthony Martial, Paul saw it sometimes with Jadon Sancho and Jesse Lingard, and there they should learn that this is not all about dribbling. Sometimes you can walk your way through the players and get into the box. Paul Ince went on to express his disappointment with Anthony Martial’s overall executive, with him his belief that the French had no interest in accommodating.
