Solskjaer Will Demand More From This Manchester United Attacking Midfielder

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he wants more from Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard.

Lingard hasn’t scored since January and was criticised last month for a post on social media during a post-season break in Miami.

“Jesse has proved before with his big-game goals that he’s valuable. But of course I’m going to demand more of him,” said Solskjaer.

“I think he will be the first one to know that his last season was not up to standard. What we have discussed can be between the two of us but I expect more from him and he knows what I expect.”

Solskjaer added: “Jesse knows what it is to be a Man United player. At times maybe he’s made one or two bad decisions but he’s made more good decisions than bad decisions. He’s a top boy.”

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has confirmed Mason Greenwood won’t leave the club on loan.

Solskjaer said: “The kid is 17 and learning every day training with these boys. When you have players who perform, it is difficult to keep them out.

“It has never been in my mind to send him out on loan. He is one that we have to keep at our place and keep him playing when we feel it’s good for him. He reminds me a little bit about the Giggsy story. He’s got a future at United, of course he has.”
