Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Lingard knows he's not met standards

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed he's spoken to Jesse Lingard about his summer antics.

The talented attacking midfielder lost his way last season and was recently disciplined by Solskjaer for posting a lewd video while on holiday in Miami with Marcus Rashford and friends.

“Jesse has proved before with his big-game goals that he's valuable. But of course I'm going to demand more of him," said the United boss.

“I think he will be the first one to know that his last season was not up to standard. What we have discussed can be between the two of us, but I expect more from him and he knows what I want.

“Jesse knows what it is to be a Manchester United player. At times maybe he's made one or two bad decisions but he's made more good decisions than bad. He's a top boy."
