Ince Still Bitter About Rovers Axe

Ince Still Bitter About Rovers Axe

Paul Ince has given his first interview since leaving Rovers. He still feels very bitter about how things panned out and feels there were many mitigating circumstances regarding his short lived reign at the club.

Paul, speaking to Sky Sports said, 'There's a plea of getting young managers in top positions. You get in there, things go pear-shaped, and before you know it people are gunning for you to get sacked,'

'The board never came out and quashed it,' he added. 'The press unsettled my players.'

'We showed 70 good minutes during the 3-1 loss against Liverpool, we matched them.

'That period gave us inspiration and we were confident we could push on.'

I am sorry Paul but judging by how the players have upped their game sicne you left I am finding it hard to understand that.

It was a tough run for him and he was unlucky but we are in a better position to avoid the drop than when he was here.

I know it must hurt him but it is difficult to see past the desperation in his comments.

Yep. I think it was his paranoia and bitterness about the press that lead to a collapse in confidence about him.

i mean if you need more than a third of a season to put good 70min of good football, you are waiting to be fired. he did not show any sign that he could turn around the club before too late, hence the axe.

it is a bit silly that he is using that as an example - i.e. the game against Liverpool.

I still think he will be a good manager in the future but he needs to start again.

Some of the points he makes in the interview were bizzare. He says they should have given him til after xmas then decide? like right in the middle of the transfer window? well done Paul. Or is point about how the liverpool gave the team confidence to go forward, yeah we really showed that getting mauled three nil against Wigan! and then he says that we would have turned it round against Stoke. I cant believe some of the stuff he says

Its a results business and the results he produced in the time he served were not good enough for the squad inherited.
