West Ham hero McAvennie: Lingard better than his Man Utd teammates Rashford, Martial

West Ham hero Frank McAvennie insists Jesse Lingard is more talent than his Manchester United teammates Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

The former Hammers forward praised the loanee and questioned whether he would even want to return to Manchester United.

McAvennie told West Ham Zone: “With Lingard, I don't think he'll want to go back to Man United because he was left out there and it's hard to get back in their squad now.

“He's really enjoying himself at West Ham.

“I think he's better than Martial and Rashford, I really do. Everyone's got an opinion and that's what I think but to be fair, he wasn't doing it at Man United. He was Jack the Lad, wasn't he?

“But there's nothing wrong with that but you've got to play on the park as well. He's back enjoying it now and playing."
