Manchester United star left furious with Solskjaer talk before Crystal Palace game

Manchester United misfit Jesse Lingard was reportedly left furious with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prior to yesterday’s surprise 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils got the new season off to a poor start with a shock home defeat, and it sounds like all is not entirely well off the pitch either.

According to the Daily Star, Lingard has been working hard to get back to peak fitness for this season, but was left ‘seething’ after being told by Solskjaer that he wasn’t even on the bench to take on Palace.

The England international is also linked with Tottenham by the Daily Star, and it sounds like it’s going to be tough for him to continue at Old Trafford as things stand.

Lingard was already out of favour for much of last season and may have to move on in order to get the kind of playing time he wants.

Man Utd fans may be concerned, however, by the Daily Star’s claims that Solskjaer has snubbed Lingard quite so much when he’s showing what sounds like a good attitude and determination to get back into the first-team fold.

Lingard hasn’t always been the most popular player at United, but he’s a homegrown talent who has had some big-game performances for the club down the years.

Former United midfielder Luke Chadwick recently told CaughtOffside that he felt the 27-year-old still had something to offer the team, even if only as a squad player.

“On form I think Jesse Lingard can offer so much to Manchester United,” he said. “We speak about players like (Paul) Pogba, (Bruno) Fernandes, who are all wonderful on the ball, but I think what Lingard offers is wonderful movement, whether he plays in central or wide areas. He understands the game really well in terms of his movement off the ball.

“I think maybe more likely now is that that could be coming off the bench, but I think there is game time there for Lingard. Obviously he needs to think about his own future. If you look at the squad Ole’s put together I’d be quite surprised if Jesse was a starter, but I think he still offers plenty to be an effective Premier League player.”

    What a poor weak performance OGS your selection is very wrong timo should not be in the starting lineup, rasford also with his nonsense performance if you and Edward didn’t want the calamity from the fans, replace lidelof, shaw then winger striker, if you didn’t do that then, the two of you have a plan of sink that club down to relegation, and for you Edward if you want your family to be save do the right thing before it’s too late for you

      Well spoken…..ogs should give lingard a chance on the right wing or left wing rashford with day to day poor performance should be left aside

    Get a left-back in fast. A blanket can offer more protective comfort than Shaw. He may be good going forward but a defender’s priority is defending and Shaw’s covering play is horrid. Lindelof is a disaster waiting to happen again and again. His body language shows utter lack of confidence. Every”time he gets the ball it’s to the neärest man usually Maguire. Rashford doesn’t know how to use hïs pace to benefit the team or his mates. Just my humble opinion.

    Man.utd need experience coach who can change things at Old Trafford . The present coach is inexperienced to manage a great team like Manchester united. Even if , he is giving all resources he couldn’t make it at Old Trafford reason being he has less experience to manage man.utd. What a bad record last season, three semifinals without a single win .

    1. Ash says:

      He had 14 games without a single loss in premier league. “Bad record”? Lol, you’re brain-dead. The squad was clearly tired because he had to choose the same 11 again and again because the depth was shit. Ed woodward didn’t address the depth issues at all… he bought no one except one, VDB

        Solskjaer is the main problem of Man Utd. Baily and Smalling would do better than Lindelof. He needs a natural no 9 as he already got great midfielder.

    Sorry to say this but ole needs to go. His style of football the possession football is boring and United are getting lost in they play . United need someone that’s not afraid to play football. United have one of the best attacking sides n ole don’t know how to bring out the best in them. Ole sorry my man you had your chance to prove us wrong but u failed. As long as you play that boring possession football you are not gonna win anything. This is the English premier league ,the best league in the world so play the football don’t be afraid.
