What West Ham fans chanted at Man United’s Jesse Lingard during warmup at London Stadium

What West Ham fans chanted at Man United’s Jesse Lingard during warmup at London Stadium

West Ham & Lingard

Jesse Lingard majorly struggled for any sort of regular action with Manchester United over the first half of the 2020/21 campaign.

As a result, it didn’t come as too much of a surprise when United allowed Lingard to depart Old Trafford on loan during the winter window.

What did prove surprising, though, was just how impressive the midfielder looked with West Ham.

In 16 league outings for David Moyes’ outfit, Lingard notched nine goals and five assists, playing a key role in the Hammers securing a Europa League berth for the 2021/22 season.

On the back of such an impressive loan stint, West Ham’s fans were no doubt hoping to see Lingard return this past summer on a permanent deal.

Upon Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Man United, Lingard was left competing with Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, Paul Pogba and the aforementioned Ronaldo for a spot in the club’s front-four.

Despite all of this competition and his previous struggles at Old Trafford, though, Lingard opted to stay put over the summer.

West Ham fans’ Lingard chant

Since remaining in Manchester, however, Lingard has seen his game time dramatically reduced.

The Englishman has been limited to three substitute appearances, including vs Young Boys earlier this week when his misplaced pass hand the Swiss outfit the win.

With Lingard once again struggling for minutes at United, reports of a potential January return to West Ham have surfaced of late.

And, judging by the reaction of the Hammers’ fans on Sunday, they would welcome the 28-year-old back.

Man United and West Ham are of course currently locked in action at the London Stadium.

Lingard did not start the tie, but was sent out to warm up around the hour-mark. And this prompted the home fans to chant the following in his direction:

“He wants to come back, he wants to come back, Jesse Lingard, he wants to come back.”
