Vinnie Jones has called for Manchester United to give season ticket holders half of their money back following the team’s woeful first half of the Premier League season.
The footballer turned Hollywood hardman has accused the Red Devils players of deliberately downing tools under former boss Jose Mourinho, having watched them beat Cardiff 5-1 in their first game after the Special One’s sacking.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to have quickly lifted the gloom at Old Trafford since taking over from the surly Portuguese, who was axed last week after overseeing the club’s worst ever start to a Premier League season.
United looked a completely different team on Saturday as they thumped Cardiff with a sparkling attacking performance, one which few would have thought possible given their dreadful form under Mourinho.

And Jones believes loyal supporters should be refunded by the club after watching five months of dross.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on Christmas Eve, the FA Cup winner said: “What has gone on at that football club?
“With the players obviously going against their manager, how about giving the supporters half of their money back?
“The players didn’t play for the first half of the season, so give the supporters half of their season ticket money back.
“When you’re watching your team, you at least want the players to be roaring around with their hearts on their sleeves.
“The supporters want to team to absolutely work their socks off and give 150 per cent, but that hasn’t happened for nearly half the season.
“So I think Manchester United should be looking at refunding the supporters half of their season ticket money.”
