Manchester United: Fans fume over Jesse Lingard’s impersonation of Paul Pogba

Manchester United: Fans fume over Jesse Lingard’s impersonation of Paul Pogba - Manchester United News

A number of Manchester United fans have been reacting tofootage which has emerged of Jesse Lingard performing an imitation of Paul Pogba before United’s Champions League tie with RB Leipzig.

Lingard has become something of a forgotten figure at Old Trafford having fallen far down the pecking order, and Ole Gunnar Solskjær confirmed ahead of United’s goalless draw against Chelsea that the Englishman is set to be out of action through injury for a couple of weeks.

The 27-year-old has so far this season only featured twice in the Carabao Cup against Luton Town and Brighton, and in those matches he lost possession on average 8.5 times per game (Sofascore). That comes after Lingard made only nine Premier League starts last term, scoring just one goal and providing no assists (Sofascore).

Which player made the most appearances for Ferguson?

The arrival of Donny van de Beek in the summer has pushed the versatile Englishman further down the pecking order at Old Trafford. That has left him playing the role of backup, more usually seen posting on social media than appearing on the field for the Red Devils.

United fans react to Lingard footage

Footage has now emerged on Twitter of Lingard imitating Pogba in a humorous fashion. However, some United fans did not see the funny side of it and instead pointed out just how much his role in the squad has diminished, while others urged the 27-year-old to stop acting the “clown”.
