    Manchester United legend – and current Reading boss – Paul Ince has claimed the Red Devils showed a lack of respect during their FA Cup win.

    United welcomed the Royals on Saturday evening for their FA Cup fourth-round clash. And after Reading were blown off the park by the Premier League side – Ince wasn't invited for a post-match chat with any of the first-team.

    Sir Alex Ferguson did meet with Ince, but that offer wasn't extended to any of the current first-team personnel. Ince said in his press conference on Thursday: "I went straight up to see Sir Alex because I got a text from him afterwards to say ‘come up and see me'.

    "So myself, my wife and Thomas [Ince] went up there and spent an hour with him. It disappointed me because none of the United staff asked me in for a glass of wine. I didn't like that, it's a lack of respect.

    "Whoever it is, win, lose or draw, you say pop in for a drink. Whether it's wine or tea it doesn't really matter.

    "None of their staff did that so that was disappointing. I couldn't give a monkeys but I just pride it on myself, as a manager, whether or not you get beaten, you say come in for a glass of wine."

    United are starting to look back to their brilliant best under Erik ten Hag, after a shaky start under the Dutchman.

    Ince added: "Ten Hag in a short period of time has lifted the club. The last two or three years have been tough for United fans.

    "Ten Hag has started to bridge that gap. They are starting to get a presence about them. That is important, if you go back to the Fergie years there was a presence."
