West Ham manager David Moyes revealed that he was disappointed by the lack of game time for Jesse Lingard at Manchester United. Lingard had a successful loan spell at West Ham last season where he scored nine goals in 16 appearances and helped them qualify for the Europa League. He has not started for United yet this season.
“I can’t really talk about him because he’s a Manchester United player and it’s not for me to talk,” West Ham manager David Moyes said. “But he was really good for us. Jesse knows what we all think of him here. My disappointment for Jesse would be, I think he’s such a talented football player and he’s not playing. He played a big part in our second half of last season. But you’d have to give credit to the players here, they’ve moved on without Jesse.”
“People might have thought Jesse made a difference here. But the players have moved on and stepped to another level themselves. But I’ve got to say, Jesse was a big part of that.” he added. “I think really, the expectations of where the team has taken everybody to, there’s also got to be part of that where you say, ‘Wait a minute here, your team is doing really well. Don’t be so stupid. There’s not a person at this club who deserved a boo. Not one person, because of what they’ve done at the club.”
