A footballer’s destiny is usually in the hand of his manager in modern football. Some way or the other, their loyalties are also dependent on their relationships. At Old Trafford, we had players who quit the club because of friction with the management. They were influential players who earnestly contributed to the club but unfortunately they had to leave and they left when they were in their heydays.So, we take a look into Manchester United’s history book where players ended their relations with the club due to some unfortunate circumstances:

Paul Ince with his former manager, Alex Ferguson

Paul Ince joined Manchester United’s family in 1989 from West Ham United. His transfer to United was controversial due to him failing the medical test, but still signing for the club.

He soon became famous for his range of passing and tough tackling. He was not a frequent scorer but definitely was a key playmaker. He spent a majority of his prime years at Old Trafford and formed a formidable partnership with Bryan Robson and later with Roy Keane in the center of the park.

His spat with Sir Alex Ferguson has not really came into the public domain, but the manager labelled him as a "bottler" and a "big-time Charlie", which itself corroborates the tempestuous relationship with Ferguson. The Scotsman sold him to Inter Milan later.

With the impact he had, the team’s supporters were not at all happy with his departure.
