Man Utd hero Ince warns Ole after Woodward comments

Manchester United hero Paul Ince says club chief Ed Woodward giving manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a vote of confidence is "the worst thing you can get as a manager".

Woodward this week gave Solskjaer his public backing, suggesting the pressure is off the Norwegian for the time being.

"You hear chairmen come out and say that and then next minute the manager is gone," Ince told Mirror Football. "You hate it, it is the worst thing you can get as a manager a vote of confidence.

"Woodward gave Ole the contract, so he has to say that, but I'm not seeing progression like I am at Chelsea under Frank Lampard.

"So unless that changes then it will change the way people think - it will change the way fans think. Obviously Man United fans love him, he scored the winner in 99', but fans can turn and once they do it's a tough one."
