Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard has said that there is still hope for the Red Devils to make it into the top four. The Red Devils have had a disastrous start to their Premier League campaign and are currently languishing at the 8th spot in the points table.
Manager Jose Mourinho was unhappy with their 2-2 draw against Arsenal and claimed that his side “always shoot them in the foot”. However, Lingard disagreed with his manager on the point that it would be a miracle for Manchester United to qualify for the Champions League and said that there is always pressure at Old Trafford and the players need to improve themselves in order to get a place in the top four.
The player said, “There’s always pressure on people’s shoulders when it comes to Man United and it’s how you deal with the pressure. And as footballers we just enjoy our football and want to win games. That’s the main thing.”
He also said, “Yeah, I think we believe as a squad,” he added, “There’s a long way to go in the season, so for us it’s about taking every game as it comes and trying to get the three points. That’s the main thing. There are a lot of games, especially this month, so we need everyone in the squad to be fully fit.”
