“I want to go”.
“After being rejected by former teammate Wayne Rooney, Jesse Lingard has expressed his ambition to move to the Saudi Arabian League,” Britain’s The Sun reported on April 28.
Lingard is a former Manchester United youth product. More than just his brief flashes of good form during his time at United, he was also known for his unusual pied piper gestures. Instead of joining West Ham outright, he joined Nottingham Forest and was released at the end of the 2022-2023 season due to poor form.
Now a free agent, Lingard revealed that he would prefer a move to Saudi Arabia. He said: “I have never ruled out any team, any club, any league. If an offer comes, I will choose the right team for me. I still want to play soccer,” he emphasized.
Lingard added: “The only condition is that the team’s football project has to be in the right direction. “I’m still hungry and I can still play well. I’m still hungry, I can still play well, and I’ll be ready if someone calls me,” he said.
On the subject of Saudi Arabia, Lingard said: “I’m not surprised at 안전놀이터 all that so many stars are joining the Saudis. “I’m not surprised that a lot of stars are going to Saudi Arabia,” he said.
Lingard was also rumored to be joining DC United, where Wayne Rooney is the head coach. However, Rooney himself spoke out and said, “We are not interested in him.”
Meanwhile, over at Major League Soccer, talk of Wayne Rooney’s move to join DC United was brutally crushed by the Red Devils legend.
When asked about the link, he said: “I don’t know where that came from, from my point of view we’re not interested in signing him.”
