Reading boss Ince slams Ten Hag and Man Utd coaching staff: Where was the glass of wine?

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has claimed he was shown a lack of respect by the club recently.

Ince brought his Reading side to Old Trafford in the FA Cup, losing 3-1 after a second half flurry of United goals.

Despite Ince speaking positively about coach Erik ten Hag post-game, he now states the United boss was not respectful enough towards him.

"I went straight up to see Sir Alex because I got a text from him afterwards to say 'come up and see me," Ince explained in a pre-match press conference.

"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 monkey's 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."
