​Man Utd legend Ince: Sancho is still young - but this isn't FIFA!

Ex-Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has some words of wisdom for new signing Jadon Sancho.

The Englishman has struggled to make an impact at the Old Trafford club, since signing from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

Sancho was poor against West Ham United in the Carabao Cup at home in midweek, a game which United lost 1-0.

Speaking about Sancho, Ince told The United Stand: "I get that Sancho is still learning, he's still young. But this is not a FIFA game, it's not all about dribbling and dribbling and trying to beat two, three, four players or little flicks and that.

"Yeah, it's nice when they come off but the likes of Sancho and Lingard, all these flicks, just play proper football.

"Honestly, it winds me up! If you watch players like [Ryan] Giggs, they get it and they pass, one-twos and get one-on-one… we just want to keep running with the ball, trying little flicks, little backheels.

"That's what I saw with Martial, I saw it at times with Lingard and with Sancho and that's where they need to learn that it's not all about dribbling. Sometimes you can pass your way through players and get yourself in the box."
