Jordan slams Man Utd outcast Lingard - and Aubemayang

Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has taken aim at departing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

Jordan says Lingard has only himself to blame for his career decline at United.

Jordan compared Lingard's demise to former Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who went on to shine at Barcelona.

He told talkSPORT: "Jesse Lingard is the architect of his own downfall. He has reaped precisely what he has sown, and it's not just with Ralf Rangnick, it was with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer too.

“We can all go somewhere for five minutes. [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang has been at Barcelona for five minutes, and he will revert to type.

“We all knew he would do that for five minutes and when he comes back down to reality and not proving the point, he'll be back being late to training and doing precisely what he wants.

“Now, Jesse Lingard is in the situation where he could have left Manchester United whenever he wanted, it's only his performances that have dictated him not being in the side."
