Jesse Lingard says the team environment at West Ham was a huge factor in helping the midfielder through a difficult spell in his career last season, as well as brother Lou, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Bruno Fernandes. In a candid interview with The Players Tribune, the Manchester United midfielder has spoken about being frozen out at Old Trafford last season.
Lingard, 28, made a loan move to West Ham in January after he was left questioning his future in the game at United. Back in the mix at United and back in the England squad, Lingard said his troubles began when he sustained a groin injury soon after starring for England at the World Cup.
Like a ghost. Love it to death.
Lingard said Lou came to the fore during lockdown. And it was his brother who convinced him a loan spell away from United was the way forward. No chance.
Ole wanted me to stay at United and help the team last January, but for my own sake he understood that I needed to go. I needed to play regular football again and I needed a new environment. He gave me my debut for the reserves way back.
Lingard also cites his loan spell at West Ham as a big part of his recovery after his new team-mates insisted he did not retreat to his phone or listen to music when he was in and around the squad. No more mm-hmm. It helped us bond as a team, and personally, it helped me a lot.
Lingard was nominated for Premier League player of the month for February and March and finally won the award in April. Can you believe that? He was dropping me messages of support throughout my loan. To get that recognition from someone at his level was just amazing.
Cheers for everything boys. Bruno Fernandes has seemingly made it very clear about what Manchester United should do about Jesse Jesse Lingard.
