Lingard criticised by fans .

Published 12 Comments

Jesse Lingard may have only scored Manchester United's winning goal in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace a couple of months ago, but it appears that he still has a lot of work to do to make it at Old Trafford. 

Lingard, 23, has more often than not split opinion amongst the United faithful, but it's uncertain as to whether new manager Jose Mourinho will hand him a prominent role in the team ahead of the 2016/17 season. 

The Special One is certainly handing him a chance to impress and the youngster is currently starring against German outfit Borussia Dortmund in China.
