Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has advised midfielder Jesse Lingard to leave the club at the end of the season especially if his hopes of being a regular appears bleak.
Speaking after the Norwich City game, he was asked about Lingard’s future at the club and told Stadium Astro: “The jury’s still out. We had a lot of hopes, he came through the ranks and we love that. He knows the club through and through, he loves the football club and we thought he was going to go on where Rashford is at the moment.
“He’s come a little unstuck at the moment and he has to find another gear somewhere along the line. At the moment, it’s just not happening.
“At 27 years of age, you ought to be a bit regular. If it’s not happening, maybe he has to look elsewhere. But for now, he’s still got some games and he’s still got to prove himself.
“But I think there is a little bit of a question mark over his name at the moment for sure, he’s fully aware of that, there’s no two ways about that. He knows that he’s not in the team and he needs to do more to get back in.”
Lingard’s had another disappointing performance against Norwich, where he failed to create anything and was subbed after the hour-mark.
He’s said to be among the five players the club will be looking to sell him in order to raise funds to sign Jadon Sancho in the summer.
