Manchester United: Fans slate Jesse Lingard after Gareth Southgate explains why he left him out

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).

However, the 24-cap England international’s poor form stretches way back to December 2018, the month where he scored and assisted his last goals for the club in the Premier League (via 90min).

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:

Manchester United fans, what do you make of Lingard’s form this season? Let us know your thoughts!
