Lingard upset with Rangnick after Man Utd farewell denied

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard was upset with manager Ralf Rangnick after being blanked for last night's win against Brentford.

The Manchester Evening News says sources close to Lingard, who is out of contract in June, say the 29-year-old was dismayed by Rangnick's decision to send on Edinson Cavani ahead of the academy graduate in the 3-0 win. Lingard's final home game for United turned out to be in the 3-2 win over Norwich on April 16.

In an Instagram post on Monday night, Lingard's brother Louie lambasted United for their 'classless' failure to let Lingard come on, adding 'no wonder it's Conference League next year'.

Lingard and Cavani are both out of contract on June 30 and certain to leave. Cavani has missed 29 of United's 47 games this season and has been criticised for his tendency to declare himself unfit for games.

Rangnick's decision to introduce Cavani over Lingard has gone down badly in the Lingard camp. Lingard joined the United academy at the age of seven and was a member of United's FA Youth Cup-winning squad in 2011. The England international struck the winner in the 2016 FA Cup final, scored in the triumphant 2017 League Cup final and came on in the Europa League final three months later.
