INCE NOT ON
Former Manchester United hardman Paul Ince has urged Donny van de Beek to leave Old Trafford in January for the ‘good of his career’.
The 24-year-old has played SIX minutes of Premier League action this season – and Ince believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deceived the Dutchman when signing him from Ajax.
Ince, 53, told The Kelly and Wrighty Show: “If I’m going to buy a player, a top player from Ajax, the first thing I’m going to say is, ‘Am I going to play? Where do you see me fitting in, within the system, within the team?’
“As a manager you have two choices – you can either tell the truth or not tell the truth.
“From what I’m seeing for the last year and a half, he’s not told Donny [van de Beek] the truth, he hasn’t had any game time. He’s got £35million sitting on the bench.
“I can hold my hands up if I’m on the bench and the team are winning and playing well.
“You can’t tell me that Fred and [Scott] McTominay are playing well week in and week out, and even [Paul] Pogba because they’re not.
“But he seems to play them all the time, and I’m sitting there watching them play, I would be livid.
“He’s been professional, he’s done everything by the book. Ole’s come out saying he’s in my plans, obviously he’s just blatantly lying, he has to move in January for the good of his career.”
