Jesse Lingard Addressees ‘Lows’ At Manchester United

Jesse Lingard has not exactly had it easy at Manchester United.

The Englishman first had to endure four loan spells away from the club before being granted a proper run in the first team, an opportunity that arised under Louis Van Gaal back in 2015.

Since then, it’s fair to say that the former academy graduate has not had the smoothest of rides. He has often been a bit part player for United, offering his lively services on a rotational basis for the club. Barring his best goal-scoring season during the 17/18 campaign under Jose Mourinho, Lingard has never managed to fully establish himself as a ‘top quality’ starter.

This factor is predominantly what stems frustration amongst fans when it comes to the 27-year-old. Not the most technically gifted player, the Englishman’s strengths lie with his positional movement and pressing of the ball. Such traits are no doubt useful to possess in the squad, but due to a lack of options, he is seen as one of the squad’s more attacking figures, a label his stats do not justify.

One thing that can’t be denied of Lingard though, is his desire for the club to succeed. As a boyhood fan, he is United through and through, and his love in representing the badge is evident for all. When asked what helps him go the distance in games by the club’s official site, he has said:

“The main thing is to concentrate on the game, to get the win. That’s the most important thing. I just think all the lows that I’ve had, I’m here now, coming onto the pitch and doing what I love doing best. I love playing football and I’m at Man United, so you try and be positive in that aspect.”

On the field, Lingard no doubt gives his all for the club. His hard-working attitude has seen the midfielder rack up over two-hundred games for United – the most out of his fellow academy teammates that he won the 10/11 FA Youth Cup with. Had you made this statement back then, not many would have believed it.

Despite addressing the ‘lows’, which evidently take its toll on the player, Lingard remains committed to keep working hard and represent United the best he can, for as long as he is trusted to.
