Paul Ince has slammed David de Gea for his post-match interview after Manchester United’s defeat to Newcastle.
United continued their worst start for 30 years with a defeat to Newcastle on Sunday, leaving them 12th in the Premier League.
“It is not acceptable, not just this game but the whole season,” De Gea said. “It is the most difficult time since I have been here. I don’t know what is happening. We cannot even score one goal in two games.”
Ince was not impressed with his words and branded him clueless.
“I watched David De Gea’s post-match interview and I was at a loss,” Ince told (via The Mirror). “He’s meant to be one of the leaders, if that was Peter Schmeichel standing there, there’s no chance you’d have seen that interview.
“Rather than him addressing and recognising where the team were going wrong, it just felt like ‘I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know.’ This is one of the top players, the leaders at Manchester United, who has just signed a five-year contract!
“And he looks like he doesn’t have a clue what’s going on. If you’re a United fan listening to your goalkeeper, one of the main leaders in the team, and that’s the interview you here you’d be right to be disgraced. I’d be looking thinking, Jesus, he doesn’t have a clue what’s going on – I bet he’s regretting signing that contract.”
