Jesse Lingard

English player Jesse Lingard has been a Red Devil for almost his entire footballing career. The 26-year old joined the youth academy at the age of 7 before moving up the ranks rapidly. It was only during the 2011 season that he finally broke into the Manchester United squad. However, he only made it as far as the reserves bench on a number of occasions, as Sir Alex Ferguson left him out.

A year later, he was loaned off to Leicester City, along with Michael Keane in order to get more playing time. In all, he made a grand total of five appearances for Leicester until January 2013.

After his loan spell, Jesse Lingard was recalled and included in United’s pre-season tour and finally played his first game for them, under David Moyes. Lingard went on to finish as top scorer in the tour, but it wasn’t enough to remain with the Red Devils, being loaned out yet again.
