Photo: Lingard’s message to Rashford ahead of Liverpool v Man United

Jesse Lingard will always support his team-mate on the pitch for club and country

Jesse Lingard has taken to social media to assure Marcus Rashford that he can count on him for his support during games.

The pair both lined up for England during Tuesday’s goalless draw in Slovenia but they were unable to inspire Gareth Southgate’s men to victory.

Both Lingard and Rashford came through the youth system at Manchester United and the pair clearly have a strong friendship.

And Lingard used his personal Instagram account to share a picture from Tuesday’s game of him trying to step in after Rashford was confronted by a Slovenia player.

Lingard posted the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Always got u bruh 👊🏾 @marcusrashford”

Both Lingard and Rashford will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action after the international break with a crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.
