Manchester United: Fans slam Jesse Lingard despite captaining the side against Astana - Manchester United

Manchester United fans were furious that midfielder Jesse Lingard was handed the captain’s armband during their 2-1 defeat to Astana in the Europa League on Thursday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made the decision to hand the local lad the key role in the team as the Red Devils fielded a youthful side as his side fell to defeat in Kazahkstan.

Lingard gave his side a first-half lead after just 10 minutes before conceding two goals in the space of seven minutes in the second period as they came away from Nur-Sultan empty-handed.

Despite his mature performance, United fans couldn’t believe their eyes as the 26-year-old was given the responsibility of leading the team into battle.

Fans were enraged about the decision and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he was completely ashamed of his club because of the great captains of the club’s past.

Here you find some of the many angry responses from Manchester United supporters:
