Former Man United player makes shocking claims about current stars

Paul Ince

Former Manchester United star Paul Ince believes some players are losing on purpose to get Jose Mourinho sacked.

The Red Devils haven’t won a game since beating Young Boys in the Champions League, and the last clash saw us play out a drab 0-0 against Valencia.

Ince was speaking to Paddy Power News (h/t Mirror) as he claimed the players are hiding behind the manager regarding the poor results:

“What I find disappointing is those players are happy for Mourinho to take the blame. They should be admitting the fact that they are responsible for the way they’re playing.

“They’re throwing him under the bus, despite putting in poor performances every week. And they’re getting away with it. Some players want Man United to get beat, just so that there’s pressure on Mourinho to be sacked.”

The former Red Devil seemed to blame the current predicament on the players and was “baffled” that they weren’t putting in the effort for the manager.

Manchester United Jose Mourinho

A number of United stars have been below par since the start of the season. Although we have some of the best attackers in the world, something simply isn’t clicking this season.

The Red Devils have lost three of their seven Premier League fixtures and are out of the Carabao Cup already.
