Jesse Lingard was able to perform well while on loan at West Ham last year by scoring 9 goals and 4 assists in 16 appearances. Upon his return to Old Trafford, Lingard was rarely played by Ole. As a result, he was only able to score 2 goals and 1 assist in 9 matches. (AFP/Oli Scarff)
Former Manchester United player Gary Neville also spoke up in response to Jesse Lingard’s situation. He said the midfielder did not need to dramatize the situation and focused on continuing his career.
The problem in question occurred at the beginning of last week. At that time Manchester United hosted Brentford where the match was Manchester United’s last home game in the 2021/2022 season.
As a result, he hopes to get a chance to play in the party, even though he is a substitute.
But unfortunately, Ralf Rangnick did not give that opportunity.
Jesse Lingard this season has minimal appearances with Manchester United , not even half the season. He has only played 16 times, and collected two goals.
Garry Neville admitted that he was surprised by the situation that Lingard and his brother had created.
He judged that what the playmaker was doing was merely dramatizing what was actually an ordinary situation.
“I don’t understand the fuss about Lingard. I’ve seen a lot of better players than him but didn’t get the chance to say goodbye,” Neville wrote on his Twitter account.
At the same time, Neville asked the playmaker to move on from his life at Manchester United.
He called the playmaker better focused on continuing his life after leaving Old Trafford.
He’s got it all, so move on!” he said.
Lingard himself has so far received a flood of offers both from within and from outside England. Newcastle’s name is reportedly the strongest candidate to get Lingard’s services this summer.
