- Ince once claimed that anyone could've done Solskjaer's job at Man United.
- However, the former midfielder insists he didn't mean to offend the Norwegian.
Paul Ince has claimed that his famous 'I could have gone in and done the same thing' jibe over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's impact at Manchester United was taken out of context.
Speaking to the Evening Standard, the former midfielder said: "If they listen to what I'd actually said they'd understand what I meant. I didn't say anyone could do that job. What I said was anyone like myself, Mark Hughes, Steve Bruce – people who know the club.
"When United were on the run they were on under Jose Mourinho, we knew all the stuff that was coming out, all the crap that was coming out. We knew the players weren’t happy, the style they were playing. We knew the fixture list that was coming up when Mourinho left.
"I said anyone could have done that because you go into the team and say, 'This is how we're going to play, take the shackles off.' Don’t tell me I couldn’t have done that. So when I say 'anyone', it's not someone you take out of f****** Tesco to go and do it. It's someone who knows the club. That's what I was saying."
Ince has a long and baffling history of criticising the Old Trafford manager, starting all the way from the 2018/19 campaign when the Norwegian replaced Mourinho.
