“I’m really frustrated … his game in the last third isn’t good enough”: Louis Saha slams Manchester United striker Jesse Lingard before urging him to improve his end product
- Jesse Lingard experienced a torrid delay for both Man United and England
- He played only 867 minutes in the Premier League this term after losing his form
- Louis Saha pushed the English forward for not realizing his potential
Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has labeled Jesse Lingard as frustrating to watch, claiming that he desperately needs to improve his end product.
Lingard has endured a torrid period lately – with only 867 minutes in the Premier League for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team this season – also losing his place in the English set-up.
And Saha, who scored 42 times for the Red Devils between 2004-08, slammed Lingard claiming he hadn’t realized his potential.

“Jesse has a lot of energy and runs a lot, but where fatigue is that he doesn’t connect the game well enough and struggles with that end product,” the former French international told Bonus Code Bets.
‘When I watch him play, I feel really frustrated because he does a lot of things well, but his game in the last third is not good enough, which is about an attacking midfielder.
‘He has a lot of talent and is a good player, but sometimes he has a hard time getting involved and is unable to find himself in the right areas.
“When Jesse gets into the right positions, things will start clicking for him and he will achieve goals.”

The 27-year-old failed to register a single target or provide assistance throughout the past year and subsequently fell in the order of pecking at Old Trafford.
He appears to have lost the confidence of United Solskjaer’s manager, who pulled him out half-time in the humiliating 45-minute capitulation against rivals Manchester City in the Carabao Cup last week.
Lingard’s contract at Old Trafford expires next summer and his future remains uncertain as he desperately tries to return to contention for both the club and the country.
