Jesse Lingard who turns 23 next month, has recently gained beautiful form with the Red Devils. The youngster has proved his capability which resulted in him earning his first senior England call-up for the game against France. Lingard was a part of United’s youth academy as he joined the team at the age of 7.

In an interview, Jesse claimed that as a kid, while joining the academy, he chose Manchester United over arch rivals, Liverpool. Speaking to United, he said:I was at a local club, Penketh United, and Mike Glennie, a Manchester United scout, came to watch me. He spoke to my grandad and offered me trials but there was also interest from Liverpool and I had to pick. I was only young but obviously my heart was with United at the time.”

 

“Going through the years, I was with Larnell Cole, Mike and Will Keane, Sam [Johnstone], Ravel [Morrison] and Tunners [Ryan Tunnicliffe],” he added.

“There are a lot of lads still doing their thing at other clubs and they’re happy seeing me where I am.

“I’ve won a lot of trophies — like the FA Youth Cup and the reserves league a couple of times — but it would top it off to win the Premier League with the first team.”

Born and bred Manchester United, Jesse Lingard has come out as a promising youngster who is indeed living the best time of his life at Old Trafford. 

The midfielder recently got a call-up from England national team manager Roy Hodgson for the international friendlies against Spain and France.
