The 27-year-old had a hard season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer. Did he give me problems?

"I knew having been there before I could get there again".

The England midfielder (27) had assumed greater responsibility for his younger siblings after his mother fell ill earlier in the season.

"I wasn't performing and he [Solskjaer] was on me all the time. He wanted more from me", he added. He has played for plenty of clubs and won many trophies.

Lingard also feared for his future in the team after posting a freakish video on social media with teammate Marcus Rashford before the start of the last campaign.

The Manchester United midfielder enjoyed a cathartic end to a hard campaign, scoring his first Premier League goal of the season in the 98th minute of the final game against Leicester to seal qualification to next season's Champions League.

Lingard has not started a game for United since their 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on New Year's Day.

And Lingard, who was part of United's academy during Ronaldo's time at Old Trafford, believes the Portugal global is football's answer to Jordan.

United continued their resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they clinched third in the Premier League ahead of Chelsea.

Having quite recently finished a Premier League season that was suspended mid-season due to the corona virus pandemic and got done with games played without any fans present, Lingard is preferable put over most to offer direction on what the National Basketball Association players will encounter when they come back to the court inside the air pocket at Disney's Wide World of Sports complex in focal Florida.

"Of course it's a mistake from the keeper, also but if Jesse doesn't go there the goal doesn't come so this is why we work", Fernandes told MUTV. However, he claimed that, when they faced each other in Man United's clash with Juventus in last season's Champions League group stage, Ronaldo didn't give him too much trouble.

"I'm always thinking about the next one".
