Paul Ince Club Career
- At the age of 14, he joined the youth team of West Ham United in 1982 and began his career at the club. He made his debut for the club on 30 November 1986 against Newcastle United in the First Division.
- In the 1987-88 season, he became a regular first-team player and one of the key players for West Ham United, proving himself to have all-around qualities of pace, stamina, uncompromising tackling, and good passing ability. Unfortunately for him, West Ham was not enjoying one of their best spells when he broke into the team. Despite having won the FA Cup in 1980 and finished third in the league in 1986, they had failed to sustain their challenge for major honours and finished 15th in 1987 and 16th in 1988, and worse was to follow.
- In the 1988-89 season, in a struggling West Ham side, he shot to national recognition with two stunning goals in a shock 4-1 win over defending league champions Liverpool in the League Cup and continued to score goals as the Hammers reached the semi-finals while having real trouble finding any form in the League. West Ham lost to Luton Town in the semi-finals and, despite frequent displays of individual brilliance from him, were relegated at the end of the season, a disappointment which cost manager John Lyall his job after 15 years at the helm. West Ham's relegation sparked inevitable speculation that Ince would be sold to a First Division club, with Manchester United being among the clubs being linked to his signature.
- On 14 September 1989, he joined Manchester United for the fee of £1 million. He made his debut for the club on 16 September 1989 in a 5-1 win against Millwall. During his career at Manchester United, he became United's key midfielder, with snapping tackles, raking passes, and some tremendously hit shots, though he was not too prolific a goalscorer. He won numerous honours with Manchester United where he made 214 appearances for the club, scoring 23 goals and providing 16 goals in all the competitions. With Manchester United, he won two Premier League, FA Cup, three FA Charity Shield, one Football League Cup, European Cup Winners’ Cup, and one European Super Cup.
- After playing six seasons at Manchester United, on 1 July 1995, he signed for Inter Milan. He made his debut for the club on 27 August 1995 in a 1-0 win against Vicenza. On 6 April 1996, he scored his first goal for the club in a 4-2 win against Cremonese. In his first season, he made 35 appearances for the club, scoring 3 goals and providing 1 assist in all the competitions as Inter Milan failed to challenge for a 14th scudetto, finishing seventh in Serie A.
- He had another successful season with the club where he made 38 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals and providing 2 assists in all the competitions as Inter Milan finished third in Serie A and also played his part in Inter's run through to the UEFA Cup final. Additionally, he was offered a new, improved contract by club president, Massimo Moratti, despite having two and a half years left on his current contract. However, due to family reasons, he was unable to accept the contract and returned to England with Liverpool.
- After two seasons in Italy, on 10 June 1997, he returned to England joining Liverpool for more than £4 million- a move that surprised many because of the long history of rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool, and few players had ever appeared for both of these clubs during their careers. He won no honours in his two seasons with Liverpool as his new club were in the midst of a transitional period where they were cast as 'nearly men', and also described as the 'Spice Boys' - a term coined to describe players including Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler, Jason, McAteer, and Jamie Redknapp as underachieving playboys in the game; the term itself is derived from the name of the contemporary pop group, the Spice Girls. During his career at Liverpool, he made 81 appearances for the club, scoring 17 goals and providing 11 assists in all the competitions.
- On 30 July 1999, he signed for Middlesbrough for £1 million. As club captain, he played three seasons for the club where he made 103 appearances for the club, scoring 8 goals and providing 3 assists in all the competitions.
- On 5 August 2002, he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers where he played four seasons for the club. During his career at Wolverhampton Wanderers, he made 127 appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals and providing 3 assists in all the competitions.
