Jesse Lingard of Manchester United is told why he should reject his old club West Ham by Jack Wilshere.
JACK WILSHERE has expressed his thoughts on Jesse Lingard’s future at Manchester United.
Former West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere has advised Jesse Lingard against leaving Manchester United for West Ham.
Lingard had a fantastic loan spell at the London Stadium during the second half of last season.
His performances earned him a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships last summer.
Last summer, West Ham wanted to sign Lingard on a permanent basis.
The midfielder, on the other hand, desired to remain at United in the hopes of gaining more playing time.
He has made just one appearance since Ralf Rangnick replaced the sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December, and has yet to start a Premier League match this season.
Lingard’s Old Trafford contract expires at the end of the season.
Due to the player’s contract situation, David Moyes wants to bring him back to east London and is looking for a cheap deal.
Lingard, on the other hand, has been advised by Wilshere to stay at United for as long as possible.
Lingard must live in the moment at a club the size of United, according to the ex-England international, who has been training with Arsenal since October to maintain his fitness.
“I think he thought he was going to get a chance [at United]after the six months he had at West Ham,” Wilshere told talkSPORT.
He deserved a chance, in all likelihood.
“It’ll be interesting to see what transpires this time.”
He most likely deserves to play, and he will believe he deserves to play.
“The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
At Arsenal, I had this problem a few times with players who didn’t want to be there.
“Sometimes you have to take a step back and appreciate how fortunate you are to be a part of a big club like that, and the fans…
“OK, they’re not challenging, but it’s still a big club, and teams go there and are intimidated.”
“Being on the other side of the fence instead of going to those places makes a huge difference.”
In December, West Ham manager David Moyes expressed his disappointment with Lingard’s lack of playing time at Manchester United.
“I can’t really talk about him [Lingard] because he’s a Manchester United player and it’s not my place to talk about him,” the Hammers manager said.
“However, he was excellent.
