Former Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard confessed that drinking helped him through difficult times.
A former Manchester United youth player, Lingard made his first-team debut in 2014 but failed to establish himself as a key player. He faced a lot of criticism for failing to meet fans’ expectations, and after missing the first half of the 2020/21 season, he went on loan to West Ham United during the winter transfer window.
At West Ham, it seemed to shoot a flare for revival with 9 goals and 5 assists in 16 matches, but even after returning to Manchester United last season, he was completely pushed out of the main competition and moved to Nottingham Forest ahead of this season. 온라인바카라
According to the British Daily Mail on the 19th (Korean time), Lingard confessed that he endured by drinking alcohol during a difficult time at Manchester United.
Lingard said, “I drank before going to bed. Looking back now, I think, ‘Why did I do that?’ But at the time, I needed something to ease the pain.”
Lingard revealed that the pressure to play in the 2019/20 season, criticism from the fans and his mother’s struggles with depression had put him under a lot of stress.
“I had to try to forget what was going on, but things would get 10 times worse,” said Lingard. I tried to be,” he said.
“It felt like the world was on my shoulders. My mother’s depression got so bad that I couldn’t take care of her anymore and had to get help,” he said, looking back.
“At the time, I wasn’t the first thing my younger siblings wanted. They always wanted Jesse Lingard, who was funny, funny and lively. It wasn’t, but I needed a break. Of course I couldn’t play properly.”
Supporting Lingard was his teammates and then-Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Lingard said, “One time, I was about to win a game and get on the bus, but a fan came up to me and cursed at me. Luke Shaw came down from the bus and supported me.” He asked how I was doing,” he said, expressing his gratitude.
