Lingard’s recent antics during the team’s training has angered club fans, compelling them to express their anguish on Twitter.

In the video, Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira are seen messing around with the ball, while the rest of the team continue to prepare with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Man United duo have been facing intense criticism for their form in the past couple of seasons, particularly in the Premier League. Andreas Pereira has managed to score just once in 23 Premier League games this season. On the other hand, Jesse Lingard has played 20 games but is yet to score for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Is that Andreas with him? They both fit eachother. And I do not blame them— IPriest (@IPriest6) February 26, 2020
Should be putting in more effort to get back on form— Trey (@Saucymartial) February 26, 2020
I don’t have a problem with players enjoying themselves in training....but I think this was definitely bad timing. Just been left out of a squad, the last thing you’d think they would do is this sorta stuff.— Ian Nagle (@IanNagle4) February 26, 2020
Your think they’d get their heads down and graft.

Man United manager had earlier expressed his anguish on the duo’s attitude. The duo were also dropped from the squad to play against Watford last Sunday. Solskjaer had then clarified his stand on dropping Lingard and Pereira claiming that there was more competition in the team. According to the manager, they need to improve their game in order to play for the Red Devils.
