Lingard: I Signed To Win More Trophies

share on:

Jese Lingard has stated he is extremely happy about signing a renewal with Manchester United and says his main motivation is to win trophies.

The England international signed a new four year contract extension on Thursday , and it is believed to be worth 100,000-a-week.

The 24-year-old has scored in FA Cup, community shield and EFL Cup victories and is eager to win more trophies.

“I am obviously over the moon and very happy,” Lingard said to MUTV.

“Me and my family worked hard to get me to where I am and the hard work now starts again.

“We know Manchester United’s history and the fact the club is known for winning trophies. That is why I signed again.

“We want more silverware like we have had over the last two years.

“We know [Jose Mourinho’s] resume and the fact he has won a lot of trophies. It is obviously great to work under him. He has put trust in the young players this season.”

On his FA Cup-winning goal against Crystal Palace in 2016, Lingard added: “That goal is at the top at the moment. It was a very important season for us to come out with a trophy.

“Last season I had to work hard to get into the team. I did that and I have got to crack on this season as well.

“I have come on and progressed each season. I think the [pre-season] tours have helped me in that respect and going out on loan.”
