Tyson Fury sends message to Jesse Lingard after winning goal v West Ham

Tyson Fury enjoyed Jesse Lingard’s winner against West Ham on Sunday.

The heavyweight boxer has backed Lingard in a public message, after the forward netted a late winner against the team he spent the second half of last season on loan with.

Lingard came in for strong criticism last week after his back pass led to a winning goal for Young Boys in United’s opening Champions League game.

But he made up for that yesterday with a cracking strike in the 89th minute.

Fury quoted Rocky Balboa in a tweet directed to Lingard after the match, as seen below:

The boxer is a United fan who has previously featured on Stretty News TV.

His tweet was ‘liked’ by Lingard.
