Ally McCoist urges Man United to transfer list Jesse Lingard following video

Jesse Lingard divides the fans like no other. The Warrington-born-winger was a real asset under Jose Mourinho, although over the last six months or so his form has dipped massively.

The 26-year-old is often criticised for his lack of offering nothing but movement – and that knock on him is probably fair based on his on-field performances since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken charge.

Anyway recently, a video of Lingard emerged while on his holidays and once again, the fans weren’t best pleased with his off-field antics.

Earlier today, talkSPORT were discussing the incident that took place and Ally McCoist went as far as saying that he would be transfer listed if he was in charge.

“When you’re a professional footballer, you’re representing your country every single second of the day,” he said on talkSPORT, transcribed by the Daily Mirror.

“He’s been brought up through Sir Alex Ferguson’s regime. He should know how to behave at all times.

“He has videoed this himself and put it on social media himself. So for me, there’s no way back.

“The manager and his staff have got to sort this out. That is unacceptable from him. I’d put him on the transfer list.

“He has forgotten who he is and what his contract means. In his contract he will have things saying ‘you will not bring the club into disrepute’.

“He could be sacked for that.”

Although I feel putting him on the transfer list is a little bit too far, McCoist is right with his comments overall. Lingard is no longer a little kid, he’s now 26 and amongst the more senior players within the squad.

I would like Solskjaer to have a word with Lingard about his goings-on off the field as there is certainly a time and a place. I’m not saying the England international shouldn’t have fun, but this time I think that things just went a little too far.

It is becoming a little embarrassing that this is even being discussed. In what is arguably United’s biggest transfer window in perhaps a decade, Lingard has overshadowed everything due to his childish behaviour, and for me, the club need to warn him about future conduct.
