Lingard subjected to sickening verbal abuse as he boards Man Utd team bus

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has been filmed being subjected to sickening abuse from fans as he boarded the team bus after their FA Cup win over Derby County.

Lingard played the full 90 minutes in a 3-0 win at Pride Park, being involved in the first goal as Luke Shaw's shot took a slight deflection off his back before hitting the net.

It was a successful night for Lingard and the Red Devils to keep their hopes of FA Cup glory alive – but the England ace was still on the receiving end of a torrent of abuse.

A clip circulated on social media showed him making his way onto the bus being met with a man repeatedly shouting: "F*** off, Jesse", "Jesse, you're s***" and "you're w*** Jesse".

Another man also mocks Lingard over the fact he is yet to record a goal or assist in the Premier League in 2019.

Lingard keeps his head down as he gets onto the coach and takes his seat, whilst a passenger already on board turns back towards the door and appears to stare at the two men abusing Lingard.

The incident comes just two days after Tottenham star and Lingard's England team-mate Eric Dier stormed into the stands to confront a fan over ongoing abuse whilst sat near his family.

It has been a tough year for Lingard, who has been on the receiving end of plenty of abuse for his below-par performances during a frustrating season for the Red Devils.

He has found himself out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in recent Premier League games and been warned he could be on borrowed time as Solskjaer urged players to respond to being dropped.

"I am not going to feel sorry for you [the player], you have to make yourself available for the next game and competitive in situations," said Solskjaer.

"That is what I like. I like to see players who say, ‘okay, he has left me out for two or three games without explanation.’

"I don’t have to explain every time. Sometimes I do, yeah, but it is a way for me to say I need more. You can’t just speak to them 100 times and say, ‘now we need a change in you’. You have had opportunities.

"I’ve got to make decisions and one day… well, you give them one warning and that’s it probably, and then the next thing maybe they are not here anymore.

"You don’t have to explain every time then. You might have to think about it after."
