Solskjaer urged to keep new Hammers hero

Paul Scholes has made it clear he thinks that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should keep Jesse Lingard at Old Trafford this summer and use him to provide a competition for Bruno Ferdnandes.

Scholes originally coached Lingard while making his way through the Man United rankings.

And he has praised Lingard for his professionalism and ability to seize the opportunity with the Hammers.

“He’d had a tough time at United and I think that was all from bringing Bruno Fernandes in,” Scholes told talkSPORT 2.

“They are players in similar positions and you couldn’t argue with what Bruno has done.

“Jesse needed to play football – he needed a chance – and West Ham gave him that chance.

“I know the quality Jesse has. I worked with Jesse as an 18/19-year-old as a coach so I know the quality he possesses.

“His fitness was never going to be a problem even though he hadn’t played for a while, he’s so professional and so fit.

“He’s been sensational. For Ole, I think it would be great to have him back to give some competition to Bruno Fernandes.

“When he isn’t quite doing it we have a player in Jesse Lingard who is capable of reaching the same heights.

“His numbers since he’s been at West Ham have been just as good as Bruno’s, so it’s always healthy to have competition in the squad.

“Hopefully Jesse is ready for that and Ole wants him to do that as well.”

  1. So what Scholes is proposing is that Jesse returns to M.U on an improved contract to play second fiddle to Fernando’s again? Really? I think Jesse wants to be playing week in week out, and if he does get that sort of game time then Fernandes will be on his bike i reckon.

  2. Lingard is in the driving seat, does he want to be back up for Fernandes or star man at West Ham? At 28 going on 29 these are the peak years.
    I don’t think he is the sort of bloke who pockets big money mostly on his backside. He enjoys being the centre of attention and in the thick of things.
    Over to you Jesse!

  3. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not about to admit that he has got it wrong. His Manchester United team doesn’t want Jesse Lingard. Paul Scholes is a good judge and he is right to say that Jesse has much to offer. But Scholes isn’t the man who needs to admit an error or deviate/backtrack on his management of Manchester United. If Ole can’t manage in his own way, he’ll be on his way.
    Jesse will play for West Ham.
