Lingard rages at Ole for dropping him when he was the strongest

Jesse Lingard has explained his West Ham loan move and criticised Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer for not playing him after the lockdown despite the player being the strongest and fittest Red Devils player last season.

The 28-year-old midfielder told BT Sports: “Football is a lot of ups and downs, people go through different stages and it’s not just a straight road to the top. There are a lot of setbacks which most people don’t see and a lot of things that go on behind closed doors.”

“I came back as one of the strongest and fittest (in the Man United squad) after the lockdown and I didn’t get the chance that I was waiting for. But the whole time I was there and not playing, I was doing extra training and keeping on top of my fitness for when the time was right.”

“So for me, it’s about working hard and staying dedicated and I went back to basics.”

Lingard made an instant impact since joining West Ham as he produced a brace on his debut against Aston Villa and a penalty against Sheffield United, which helped his team to lead and ultimately win the game. On his current form, the player looks set to play an important role as the Hammers chase a European spot.

However, his criticism for not being given the chance to play for Manchester United last season is pure nonsense. Lingard was a regular starter for the Red Devils before the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January 2020, but he provided zero goal or assist in 19 league appearances. Meanwhile, Fernandes contributed 15 goals (8 goals and 7 assists) in the remaining 14 league games of 2019/20 season since joining the Red Devils.

The stunning performance of the Portuguese ultimately helped United secure a Champions League spot after finishing third. It is good to see the former England international shine again, but not a single manager in the world would have chosen the zero-contribution Lingard instead of the impactful Fernandes in any circumstances.
