Lingard regularly celebrates goals 'JLingz' style by throwing up his initials with his hands and has now given Ronaldo, in his second spell at Manchester United, some tips.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner created his own unique celebration during his time at Real Madrid and continues to shout 'SIUUU!' in unison with home supporters while jumping in euphoria whenever he finds the net.
It would be tough him for to make 'CR' with his fingers but it appears as though Lingard has given him a walkthrough on how to do 'JL' during training today.

When Ronaldo returned to United, boyhood United fan Lingard marked his homecoming by combining both the 'JLingz' and the 'SIUUU!' after finding the net for England against Andorra last month.

In 2003, fresh from signing from Sporting CP, an 18-year-old Ronaldo coached a 10-year-old Lingard and taught him how to do skills such as step-overs, as well as partaking in a game and against he and a slew of youngsters.

Fast forward 18 years and the two are teammates after Ronaldo sealed a dream return to Old Trafford.
Last week, when Lingard scored a stunning late winner against West Ham - the 28-year-old didn't celebrate out of respect to the club who helped revive his career last term.
But Ronaldo, as well as compatriot Bruno Fernandes, tried to get him to celebrate by pushing him into it.
Ronaldo and Lingard might just be thinking about merging their celebrations, something CR7 did with Paulo Dybala at Juventus against Sassuolo in 2019.
