What Man United fans are saying about Jesse Lingard after Swansea win: Twitter Reacts

Manchester United Football Club have always been known worldwide for their willingness to harness and develop young talent.

Under Jose Mourinho, I always thought that mantra would take a backward step, in fact, he’s shocked us all and put trust aplenty in academy graduates.

Perhaps his biggest success story is Jesse Lingard. The Warrington-born-winger has been playing phenomenal football all season long, and it was no different yesterday as he toyed with Swansea City with his excellent movement and brilliant football brain.

Although he didn’t get himself on the scoresheet, Lingard did pick up an assist with a delightful through ball into Alexis Sanchez. It was weighted to perfection, allowing the Chilean to run onto it and smash home.

It’s been a pleasure watching Lingard grow and develop as a footballer. At times in the past, it has looked like he wouldn’t have what it takes to make it at the highest level, but right now, he’s proving all his doubters wrong; both domestically and on the international stage.

His biggest asset is his intelligence both on and off the ball, and it’s super watching him succeed at the moment. As you’d imagine, the United fans were buzzing about ‘Jesse Messi’ all over social media, so we’ve compiled some of the best tweets below:
