Jesse Lingard’s brother has hit out at Man Utd after the player was not given a farewell after their victory over Brentford at Old Trafford.
The Englishman is out of contract this summer and he has barely featured for the Red Devils this season.
Newcastle United attempted to sign him in January but Man Utd’s hierarchy prevented this deal from happening.
It was reported on Monday afternoon that AC Milan and Juventus are ‘leading the chase’ to sign Lingard on a free transfer.
The 29-year-old was an unused substitute as United beat Brentford 3-0 on Monday night. Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane got the goals.
After the game, Lingard’s brother – Louie Scott – took to Instagram to criticise United for their treatment of the midfielder:
“20 years of blood sweat and tears, four domestic trophies, three cup final goals, not even a farewell. No wonder it’s Conference League next year,” Scott said (quotes via The Mirror).
“Attacking players for celebrations when the club’s being sold to the super league OK.
“Class of ’92, Busby Babes, you’re run by people who don’t even know the offside trap. Classless and the fans need to realise. Goodnight, god bless! Been there since nine years of age and didn’t even get a send-off!!!
“Well done bro your family are proud.”
Jamie Carragher thinks it’s “nonsense” that Ralf Rangnick will be managing Austria next season while being a consultant for Man Utd.
On becoming Austria boss, Rangnick said: “I will take over as national team manager of Austria at the end of the season but will continue my consultancy with Manchester United.
“I’m really looking forward to playing my part in helping United become a real force again.”
But Carragher thinks it is “a nonsense” that Man Utd think he will be able to fulfill his job at Old Trafford while also managing a national team.
The former Liverpool defender said on Sky Sports: “Ralf Rangnick isn’t really a manager, he’s a director of football, he’s someone who helps the coaches or builds the club.
“I’ll be honest with you I just don’t get that. I don’t think you can be manager of Austria and work for Manchester United.
“He can work for Manchester United in that role…well that’s wrong. That should not be happening.
“The manager of Austria should not be working part time for Manchester United. That’s just a nonsense! It’s one or the other.”
