Just days after Manchester United failed to edge past Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, coming back from 2-0 down to storm in front inside ten second half minutes, before Oli McBurnie netted a stoppage-time equaliser for the Blades, fans are less-than convinced following Jesse Lingard’s podcast appearance.
The 26 year-old, who didn’t have a particularly great outing in the Steel City, has opened up on the United Xtra podcast over his off-field distractions like fashion and music – claiming that he is, first and foremost, a ‘footballer first’.
Who has more ability, Daniel James or Nicolas Pepe?
As a result, supporters flocked to the replies and questioned whether he genuinely knows his profession or if he’s just ‘trolling’.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to Astana on Thursday afternoon looking to qualify from the Europa League group stages with plenty of academy graduates getting the nod ahead of a long trip to Kazakhstan.
Meanwhile, the likes of Lingard will sit out this trip and prepare for their impending league game at home to Aston Villa.
Here’s how some supporters roasted the Englishman following his podcast appearance.

He has to be trolling

1 goal in 2019 suggests otherwise

Footballer first, fashion designer second… probably entertainer third
