Paul Parker slams Jesse Lingard for accusations made against Manchester United

Jesse Lingard had an uneventful return to Old Trafford with Nottingham Forest last week – coming off injured as his team-mates struggled in a 3-0 defeat.

The England international received an ovation from the United fans as he came off the pitch in the second half, and he exchanged shirts with Marcus Rashford after the game.

Speaking about Lingard’s claims that Manchester United disrespected him and made false promises to him towards the end of his stint at Old Trafford, former right-back Paul Parker told BonusCodeBets:

“Jesse Lingard wasn’t disrespected at all in Man United and for him to say that is totally wrong.

“He is a local boy and now he is disrespecting the club instead of looking himself in the mirror. Jesse wasn’t good enough to play for Man United and he needs to acknowledge that instead of coming with accusations about the club.

“And honestly, to talk about politics as the reasons why he was a failure is rubbish. You should never use that sentence when talking about football and if he really wants to talk politics he should go and talk to Gary Neville.

“One day he will hopefully be mature enough to see that he disrespected the club by putting this in the newspaper and then should apologise to the club and the fans.”
