Tom Ince: Will wait until England commitments are over before discussing future

Tom Ince: Will wait until England commitments are over before discussing future

The 21-year-old has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Manchester United, both former clubs of his dad Paul Ince, but wants to concentrate on the European U21 Championship in Israel first.

"Once I get these Euros out of the way, I'll sit down and talk with him about my future," Ince told the Daily Mirror.

The fact that his father is also the Blackpool boss could be seen as a complicating factor in any summer transfer but the player himself insists it is not a huge issue.

He added: "He's always said to me, 'It's what you want to do.' He's my dad and my manager and he'll advise me but, ultimately, it'll be about what I want.

"On the training pitch, he's the manager, but that's as far as it goes. When we're back home, it's father and son.

"When I play, there's no favouritism. In fact, my dad is probably more critical of me than anyone else.

"I wouldn't want it any different."

A transfer to Liverpool would represent a return to the club where he began his career as a youth team player but Ince has no regrets about the decision to leave Anfield for Blackpool.

"You get a silver spoon in your mouth at an academy," he explained. "You play on a Tuesday night, win 3-0 and just get a pat on the back and, 'Report for training tomorrow.'

"You don't feel anything. I made a big decision and said, 'It is time for me to go and play some football.'"

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
