Man Utd legend Scholes hints Lingard angry after 'disaster' slip

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has hinted Jesse Lingard is upset with him for breaching confidence over a private conversation.

Scholes let slip after defeat at Arsenal that Lingard had described the dressing room as a "disaster".

Scholes has spoken to Lingard since letting his thoughts slip but also opened up on the Englishman's treatment at Old Trafford.

"I've had a little bit of stick for that. I don't know why I did it! Honestly, sometimes words just come out your mouth," he told talkSPORT.

"I have spoken to him since and probably best I don't tell you what he said.

"I think Jesse has been treated pretty poorly by the club, to be honest. He was ready to sign for Newcastle at one point and West Ham, right at the end of deadline day and he was told he was going to get more minutes.

"That clearly hasn't happened. He's deserved a chance. We all saw what he did at West Ham. He's a really good footballer and can bring goals to a team and with this team playing so poorly as well, for him not to get a chance… I think he's unfairly treated.

"I think he might suit him [Ten Hag] and he might want to keep him. We will see what happens.

"It's obvious he never wants to leave Manchester United, and if this manager wants him then why wouldn't he stay?"
