Manchester United fans are furious with a training video which shows Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira messing around in and performing a handstand.
Lingard and Pereira were dropped from the United squad for Sunday's 3-0 win over Watford after a string of poor performances.
But the midfielders trained with the 'Red Devils' squad on Wednesday, and from the session has been released.
Manchester United pay Jesse Lingard £135,000 per week to do this in training. This is the same man that has 0 goals & 0 assists in 21 Premier League appearances this season. What a total embarrassment. pic.twitter.com/BgWeqAaTh2

The duo can be seen messing around while other players train properly and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watches on.
Fans on social media were quick to react to the video and slammed the duo for being unprofessional.
So this is how Lingard trains ♂️pic.twitter.com/s7ONvlyYv6

I'm not expecting serious behaviour 24/7 but Jesse Lingard is 27 years of age earning a reported £75,000-per-week whilst his boss has told him his "standard has to improve" and he's doing this...pic.twitter.com/5jO3mAj9Rk

There's me thinking Solskjær dropping Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira would kick them into gear yet here I am reviewing a clip of them dancing around and doing handstands in training. Embarrassment.

Lingard is yet to score or assist in the Premier League this season and has reportedly linked up with super agent Mino Raiola.
Raiola has been vocal about United in recent months in relation to another client, Paul Pogba.
United boss Solskjaer commented on the duo being dropped at the weekend and told MUTV that they need to perform at a higher level.
"There's more and more competition for places. Your standard has to improve."
Do you think Lingard and Pereira will be at Manchester United next season?
