Tyson Fury uses motivational quote to laud Man United star Jesse Lingard

Posted by

If there’s one person that knows all about getting up off the floor and turning things around, it’s world champion heavyweight boxer, Tyson Fury.

The Gypsy King also happens to be a Manchester United fan, and he’s likely to have been just as delighted as any other when Jesse Lingard arrowed a last minute Exocet into the net against West Ham to win Sunday afternoon’s game.

It was a goal that deserved to win any match and came not long after Lingard had been sent on as a sub by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

At that point, the game was drifting a little, and both teams appeared to be happy with a point, however, it would take that piece of magic and David De Gea’s first penalty save in years for the Red Devils to take all three.

Lingard was the hero on this occasion, just a few days after gifting Young Boys a Champions League winner with a terrible back pass.

That clearly wasn’t lost on Fury as he tweeted: ‘It ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward.’ #Jlingz What a strike.
