Jesse Lingard has reached out to Manchester United supporters after the club’s frustrating season.
United finished in sixth place, ending the season in awful form, with the positivity from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as manager gone.
Lingard has been one of United’s most disappointing players this season, and was named in our ‘four biggest losers’ of the campaign.
He provided less than half the number of goals and assists as he did in 2017/18.
Lingard has now apologised to fans both for his and the team’s struggles.
He posted on Instagram: “Never say die! We continue fighting through the ups and downs no matter what, thank you to everyone’s support this season i know its been tough and im sorry but we go again and we rebuild 🔴 #OntoTheNextOne #KeepTheFaith”
If you were looking to defend Lingard, then there is certainly a case to say the injuries he suffered in February and March noticeably affected him.
He may also have been showing some tiredness after featuring at the World Cup, but Tottenham have made the Champions League final, and had more players in the last four in Russia 2018 than any club in Europe.
Lingard has to do better next season and is likely to find himself under pressure for his place in the side once United start signing new players.
