Jesse Lingard has opened up on the struggles he has been having in his personal life over the past year, which impacted his performances over on the pitch!
Lingard's mother is currently undergoing treatment for an illness, and due to the that he has been taking care of his brother,14 and sister,11. They have moved in with him and he has been attending parent teacher meetings for his brother as well! With her mother's treatment, taking care of his siblings and her 1 year old daughter, the stress of his personal life took a toll over Jesse which then started showing on the pitch as he lost his spot in both United and England's squad.
He also opened up about how the Snapchat story incident was his final straw of him being at United. In the interview, he says that the video was meant to be sent to his friends but it got posted to his story by mistake. And before he realised his mistake he was already in air in his flight. Ole, was reportedly furious and said that it was on his last chance and that he needed to get things together!
Lingard then decided to knock on Solskjaer's doors to finally let him know what he had been going through and why he wasn't able to focus on his job. To which Ole has been really supportive of.
You can never know what the other person is going through, and yet people jump on conclusions and start judging people around. And this clearly explains alot about why Lingard's form over the past year hasn't been great!
It's great to see him finally getting over this and getting back into the mix!
