Gary Neville insists that Manchester United attacking player Jesse Lingard should have left the club this summer.
Manchester United Legend Gary Neville has stated that Jesse Lingard should have left the club during the summer.
The Manchester United attacking midfielder spent last season on loan under David Moyes at West Ham and did incredibly well.
Lingard came in the second half of the game against West Ham on Saturday to score the winning goal for his side in a 2-1 victory.
While speaking on his podcast Neville stated that Lingard should have left to boost his chances of playing regularly.
“I still maintain he should’ve left but he will have his moments”, Neville said on his Podcast.
“I was happy to see how he bounced back after what happened in Europe in midweek.
“To bounce back and score the winner is a fantastic moment for him. He’s got good character, he’s a very good player and I feel he should be playing 40-45 games a season.
“He won’t get that at United in terms of 90-minute starts but he’s one of those players that I do feel United will benefit from having.
“I just thought for Jesse himself, he should’ve left. United could be a better team with someone like Lingard in it.”
