Video Emerges Of Man Utd Fans Abusing Jesse Lingard After Derby County Victory

Video Emerges Of Man Utd Fans Abusing Jesse Lingard After Derby County Victory

Video has emerged of Manchester United fans abusing Jesse Lingard as he boarded the team bus following last night's game.

Lingard started for United as they defeated Derby County 3-0 to advance to the FA Cup quarter-final.

The 27-year-old started the game and was rather anonymous, but some United fans took it too far at full-time.

One fan can be heard repeatedly shouting 'F*** off, Jesse, you're s***!' as he walks past.

Another can then be heard criticising his lack of goal contributions last year, screaming: "Zero goals and zero assists in 2019, you're dead."

The England international was also allegedly racially abused as he left Pride Park but those reports are unconfirmed.

Lingard has been off the pace over the last 18 months but abused of this level is uncalled for and United fans on Twitter agreed.




Lingard's loss of form could also be down to personal issues off the pitch.

He revealed n December that his mother has been suffering with illness which led to him looking after his two younger siblings.

"I wasn't performing and he was on me all the time. He [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] wanted more from me," he told The Daily Mail.

"So I felt it was best to get everything off my chest and tell him why my head wasn't right. So I knocked on his door.

"...When I came on the manager said to me, 'Just go on and play with a smile and enjoy it.' To hear that gives you confidence. He knows what kind of character I am. I need to be smiling.

"He has just told me that everything will be OK. Maybe I just needed someone to say that.

"He said he just wanted the old Jesse back and maybe I can give him that now."
