Jesse Lingard sends message to Man United fans about Paul Pogba
Jesse Lingard explains why he has been so happy to link up with Paul Pogba again at Manchester United
Jesse Lingard has admitted that he has been thrilled to link up with Paul Pogba at Manchester United once again this season.
The Red Devils re-signed the French midfielder from Juventus last summer in a world record £89m transfer deal as Jose Mourinho chose to bring the 24-year-old back to Old Trafford.
Pogba has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United team this season and helped his side win two major trophies – the EFL Cup and the Europa League.
Lingard knows Pogba from having played with him in the Red Devils’ youth set-up in years gone by – and the winger has been thrilled to link up with the Frenchman once again this term.
Speaking in an interview with Manchester United’s website, Lingard said of Pogba’s return: “It’s been great.
“I’ve known him since our time together with the Under-18s and it’s great to have him back and great to play alongside him again.
“We obviously won the FA Youth Cup together in the Academy so to take that into the first team and win more silverware has been brilliant.”
Manchester United will be hoping to attract some top players to the club in the summer transfer window after securing their return to the Champions League next season.
