Jesse Lingard, 28, has been in stellar form since his loan from Manchester United to West Ham in January, scoring nine goals in 10 matches, plus three assists. The player now assumes that he went through a state of depression and that he found reasons to change while in custody.
“I could easily give up everything while in custody and say, ‘No, I don’t want that anymore.'” But the struggle within me brought me back to life. In confinement, she participated in the gym and jogging. I wanted to get back to training better and faster than everyone else. I feel confinement has changed me. I saw my old toys and thought, “Yeah, that’s the real Jesse Lingard.” My brother, who lives with me, has a video of me literally lying on the couch looking for him for three minutes. “He did not know what was happening at the time,” the wing said.
Lingard frankly assumed he had been hired for the last few months at Manchester United, mainly due to issues with his mother. “I was going to matches and didn’t seem to mind being on the bench. I didn’t want to play because my head wasn’t there. I was thinking about other things,” he confessed.
The player was more focused on being able to help his mother, undergoing treatment in London. “I opened up with United and explained what was happening to my mom. They gave me all the support,” he stressed.
