Jesse Lingard plays down altercation with Manchester United fans during Liverpool mauling
The Metro says Jesse Lingard has played down his touchline exchange with a section of angry Manchester United supporters during Sunday’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool and revealed they told him to ‘work harder’.
The 28-year-old was an unused substitute as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side slumped to an embarrassing defeat, with the atmosphere inside Old Trafford threatening to turn toxic as the players were booed off at half-time.
Lingard, along with Paul Pogba and Diogo Dalot, were warming up near the tunnel entrance in the first half when footage appeared to show him taking abuse from United fans.
