‘There’s no evidence he can take a player to the next level’: Paul Ince takes latest swipe at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he warns Manchester United target Jadon Sancho to consider whether is the right manager for him as he nears exit from Borussia Dortmund
- Paul Ince has warned Jadon Sancho to consider if Solskjaer is right fit for him
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to sign the Borussia Dortmund winger this summer
- Ince said there is ‘no evidence’ that the Man United manager can improve him
Paul Ince has taken his latest dig at Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he warned club target Jadon Sancho to consider whether he is the right manager for him.
Ince, who made over 200 appearances for Manchester United, explained that the Norwegian boss has not shown any signs that he can improve a player of Sancho’s quality. The England international looks destined for a summer exit from Borussia Dortmund to the Premier League, with a host of clubs circling around the winger who will likely cost over £100million.
Manchester United seem to be front runners for the 20-year-old but Ince warned Sancho that he must ensure that Solskjaer is the right fit to take him to the ‘next level’.

‘When it comes to transfers, it’s not just about the team, it’s about the manager,’ Ince told Paddy Power.
‘Sometimes as a player, it’s about looking at a team’s manager and coaching staff and whether they’d take you to that next level. That’s a decision Sancho will need to make.
‘He’s clearly trying to develop a young team, so that will help, but in terms of actually the man to man management and development of someone like Sancho, he’s a total unknown. We’ve not seen any evidence yet that he can take a player to the next level.’
‘He’s not been at United long enough to know that, but also because in his previous jobs he’s not had players like that at his disposable.’

These comments are the latest from Ince, who has not been positive on Solskjaer’s reign at Old Trafford since his appointment in March 2019.
Back in January, Ince told BT Sport: ‘Too many people got sucked into how well he did at the start. The crowd got sucked into it and so did the owners.
‘You are talking about a manager who took Cardiff down, went to Molde… his CV is not great from that point of view. I want Ole to do well because if Ole does well United do well. But they haven’t done their homework and that comes down to Ed Woodward and maybe he should be the one who steps back and someone else comes in who knows about the football game.’
Sancho has impressed this season in Bundesliga with 14 goals and 16 assists from 23 appearances. His fantastic performances has earned him a regular spot in Gareth Southgate’s England set-up and plenty of Premier League giants are showing interest in the young talent.

However, Ince insisted that there are plenty of ‘factors’ to consider for the winger before he leaves the German club.
Ince added: ‘To use myself as an example, when I went to Inter Milan, I became a far better player under Roy Hodgson. He truly took my game to a next level, I felt fitter, stronger, my awareness went up tenfold. That, plus the change in culture and experience that I had.
‘What I’m saying is, Sancho needs to consider all of those factors, culture, environment, team and ultimately the manager.’
