Manchester United fans didn’t hold back in their criticism of Jesse Lingard after England manager Gareth Southgate explained why he left him out of the squad.
Southgate said that he believes Lingard has had a difficult period, however, still retains huge faith in the player (via Twitter).
Lingard, who is valued at £36 million (as per Transfermarkt), has been in shocking form for the Old Trafford giants so far this season, scoring no goals and getting just one assist in nine games in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
Reports from The Sun back in September claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan talked to Lingard over concentrating on football.
Fans were far from complimentary about the Englishman after the quotes from Southgate as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
I think every @ManUtd fan knows why lol
