Jesse Lingard

English footballer Jesse Lingard was absent in the FA Cup fourth round loss to Man Utd’s and insisted he was asked to take a break by the club.


A little about the topic

The interim Red Devils boss added to uncertainty over the midfielder’s availability to face Middlesbrough, insisting he loved having Lingard’s in his lineup for an FA Cup defeat. Jesse insisted that the club had advised him to take the day off, which was contrary to his manager’s initial suggestion that the player requested an extended break after failing to secure a January release from Old Trafford. Indeed, Jesse Lingard was absent from the line-up for the penalty shoot-out losing to the champions, with Ralf claiming that it would not make sense for him to subsequently authorize additional time off for Jesse.


What did Ralf say about Jesse Lingard?

Ralf Rangnick told reporters that with Lingard he told them that his information and his knowledge and of course he would love to have Lingard in the squad. According to Ralf today they were one less away player on the team, so why did he let him have four or five days off? Rangnick would have loved to have him in the roster, but that wasn’t the case, so it doesn’t make sense to talk about players who were unavailable.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the FA Cup fourth round clash, the Reds boss claimed that Lingard had been given extra time off. Ralf Rangnick told reporters that Jesse Lingard asked him and the club if they could give him a couple of days off just to clear his mind. Lingard will return to the group, Ralf believes, next Monday, back to practice and then again be a regular part of the entire roster.


What did Jesse Lingard say?

Jesse then came out to dismiss Ralf’s comments via social media, insisting that his omission from the Middlesbrough game had nothing to do with his mindset. Jesse Lingard wrote on the social network that the club advised him to take time off for personal reasons!. But according to Jesse Lingard, his headspace is clear and he will always be a pro when called on and give 100 percent.
