“He’s a fizzy drink” – Paul Ince rips into Manchester United quartet

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has launched a scathing attack on several of the club’s under-performing stars.

Ince, who won two league titles during a six-year spell at Old Trafford, ripped into Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial in stinging criticism of the attacking quartet.

United’s focus has been on strengthening their midfield and defensive options this summer, however Ince believes the club should focus on their attack and slammed the club’s current options following a series of below-par displays last season.

“You’ve got Marcus Rashford who scored 11 goals last year and gets a new contract,” he told BBC 5Live.

“Jesse Lingard was diabolical last year, he really, really was.

“Then there’s Alexis Sanchez. They got nothing out of Sanchez whatsoever.

“So as much as we’re talking about the defence and Chris Smalling and Harry Maguire, surely we’ve got to be looking at who’s going to be playing up top.

“We need to be looking at that because attacking-wise they’re not great.

“Martial? He’s a fizzy drink. He pops now and then. One moment he’s great, one moment he’s not.”
