Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince was so incensed with a pre-match interview that Chelsea assistant Ray Wilkins gave that he confronted him to tell him what he thought.

At fulltime in Rovers’ 2-0 defeat at Ewood Park against Chelsea on Sunday Ince and Wilkins exchanged words, with Incey later admitting that Wilkins’ pre-match comments about the match being a battle from the first whilst due to our aggressive nature (which mirrored his own as a player) angered him, and he told him as much!!!

Ince told the post match press conference: “I told Ray in no uncertain terms that the next time he wanted to say things he should get his facts right.

“I was a physical player, but you don’t play for the teams I played for if you are just a physical player. To hear this garbage about me, about us trying to put them on their arses and that we’re over-physical – you watched the game, we played some great football.

  • Paul Ince makes himself look very small minded over this. And I think he has attacked the wrong person. Ray Wilkins is one of the most mild mannered people in football, and was only paying Blackburn a compliment (stating that they are competative). For Ince to take exception is pathetic and just trying to draw attention to himself (as usual).

  • calm down Chelsea fans…. Wilkins was wrong to have a pop, coz he may of said competitive but it was in the middle of a lot of negative comments. The fact ray hasnt moaned back shows he was in the wrong…

  • The one thing about rovers under Ince is that we are playing some good stuff. It wasn’t a dirty match and our players have been a lot better this season with regards to discipline. If anything Mikel’s ‘challenge’ on Gamst said it all!
