Man Utd 28-year-old midfielder wants regular first-team spot

By | October 14, 2021

Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard has said that he is poised to become a key player for the Red Devils once again, with the forward playing a bit-part role for the club thus far this term.

The 28-year-old has only featured in three matches in the Premier League this term but netted in the wins against Newcastle United and West Ham United.

He excelled during a loan stint at the Hammers last term before returning to the Theatre of Dreams, and the England international has insisted that he is targeting regular starts for the 20-time English champions.

“You’re always going to get the highs and lows in football. Throughout the lows, you’ve got to stay confident and carry on believing in yourself,” the versatile player told reporters.

“When I went to West Ham it was a time where I could really reset and pick up my game. When I play consistent football, I score goals and get assists.

“It was a brilliant loan and much needed. I came back to United full of confidence and I want to play week in week out.”

Jesse’s current deal at Manchester United is due to expire next summer, but the board are in talks with his representatives over a possible extension.
