Jesse Lingard reveals he’s currently loving life at Manchester United

Jesse Lingard has revealed he feels his career is progressing well at Manchester United after becoming a key player under Jose Mourinho.

Lingard nearly played 50 games throughout the 2017-18 season, scoring 13 and assisting seven, after earning the reputation as one of Mourinho’s most trusted players.

In a fun exclusive interview with magazine Shortlist, Lingard opened up about his current thoughts and feelings on his career.

“This season has been good. My career is progressing nicely: I’m in the team a lot more, scoring goals, assisting, and winning trophies. It’s the best feeling.”

The 2018 World Cup kicks off in Russia next week, and Lingard will be representing England at a major tournament for the first time after obviously impressing manager Gareth Southgate as much as Mourinho.

He’s not just expected to be a squad player either, the 25-year-old is very likely to feature as a starter either on the wing or in the hole behind Harry Kane following a successful adaptation to the role throughout the last campaign.

With Mourinho targeting a world-class forward in Gareth Bale this summer, it might be the case that Lingard’s role in 2018-19 isn’t as prominent as last time but his bubbly personality on and off the field, along with being a Mancunian from birth, make him a welcome member of the squad nonetheless.
