Jesse Lingard Gives Wimbledon Fans £600 In Classy Gesture
AFC Wimbledon fans thought they had missed out on £500 after Jesse Lingard missed a penalty but, being the lad he is, the Manchester United star reimbursed them in a quality gesture.
After starring at the Emirates on Friday night, Jesse Lingard was a guest on Soccer AM and he had the chance to earn some cash for a group of Wimbledon fans.
All he had to do was successfully convert a penalty. But he failed to score.
What a save from Hashtag Jacko! :astonished:

The Wimbledon fans were stunned. However, Lingard produced the goods off-air.
He brilliantly handed each fan £100 - 600 quid in total - in a really classy moment.

Jesse Lingard Sends Emotional Message To Manchester United Fans After Champions League Qualification
Lingard went full Lingard in the FA Cup, too.
He put United two-up against Arsenal last night thanks to some slick work from Romelu Lukaku, who brilliantly found his teammate inside the box.
Despite the 26-year-old finding the back of the net, TV cameras panned to the Belgium striker who put his arms out before cupping his ears.
In doing so, they completely missed Lingard's Michael Jackson-inspired celebration.
However, a fan has captured his full celebration and it's superb.

First the 'milly rock' and now the 'moonwalk'. It's like the Emirates is Lingard's personal dancefloor.
In fact, he uploaded an image on social media of himself moonwalking and tagged the location as dancefloor.
Lingard being Lingard.
