Former Manchester United star, Luke Chadwick, has given his backing to the embattled Jesse Lingard, to rise above his challenges and shine again.
Lingard endured a torrid time at United last season, after failing to score for months, and was criticised heavily by a section of fans on social media.
But the Englishman had the last laugh, as he seemed to find form toward the end of the campaign, and Chadwick believes there could be more to be given by the United Academy graduate.
Speaking to CaughtOffside, he said, “Jesse Lingard’s obviously got a great history at the club, coming through the academy.
“He got into the first-team, had some real good spells, and probably suffered due to his personal situation affected his form last season. But on form I think Jesse Lingard can offer so much to Man United.
“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 about his own future. I think he still offers plenty to be an effective Premier League player.”
Lingard revealed towards the end of last season, that his dip in form was caused by some personal issues he was dealing with. Hopefully, all of that is truly behind him, and he can start making great headlines for United again.
