​Lingard claps back at Man Utd legends over clothing label

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has hit back at critics of his lifestyle and fashion label.

Lingard has come in for criticism for his performances in the past 18 months, with some saying he is too focused on endeavors outside of football.

But the 26-year-old believes that he lives a very boring life, and criticism of him is unfounded.

Lingard received criticism from the likes of Roy Keane and Gary Neville regarding distractions outside of the game on Sky Sports.

"I'm always an active guy," he told the Official Manchester United Podcast.

"When the world cup was on I dropped a couple of pieces and they sold out straight away. Ever since then I've carried on doing it.

"I don't do the manufacturing and stuff like that. I think people think I'm doing everything for it. They're like 'just concentrate on football'.. I don't go to the factories, pack them, do you know what I mean?

"I'm not getting tired doing anything. If you came home with me you'd just think I'm boring."
