Days after training with Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami, forgotten Manchester United product launches soccer team named JLingz FC

Ex-Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard has been long forgotten since his exit from Manchester United. The Cheshire lad was a revelation during his early days in Manchester, scoring some crucial goals during his time with the club. The winger was part of the Red Devils squad that won the FA Cup, Europa League and finished second in the Premier League. Under Luis Van Gaal, the winger scored Manchester United’s winner in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace. 

During his last year at United, Jesse Lingard launched his very own brand JLingz with merchandise, esports, and other criteria coming under its ambit. JLingz is Jesse Lingard’s creation, especially because of his celebration which made his name famous. And now, it looks like the 30-year-old is launching his own football club.

After the launch of his club, Lingard will look forward to securing his future. Currently, he is linked with DC United, but the move will take time to be finalized with the Wayne Rooney-managed club.

JLingz FC Celebration

Jesse Lingard became a footballer out of Manchester United’s academy. The 30-year-old, during his early years, was a Stretford End favorite, having scored some crucial goals.

Lingard had his best time under manager Jose Mourinho. The player scored 20 goals for the club in his 7 years and also assisted a further 10 goals. He moved to West Ham for a 6-month loan in the 2020-21 season where he was in red-hot form scoring 9 goals and assisting a further 4 goals in just 16 appearances for the club.

The England international avoided interest from West Ham for a permanent move and instead joined Nottingham Forest after his contract was over at Manchester United. He had a very underwhelming season in Nottingham Forest, not being able to contribute a single goal or assist in one full Premier League season. However, he scored 2 and assisted 2 in the Carabao Cup, which is subpar for a player of his caliber.
