- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer disclosed he has helped Jesse Lingard come back to top form
- The Norwegian manager said he warned the England star against wasting time on social media
- Solskjaer also believed the forward will score against Man City in the first leg of Carabao Cup semi-final
Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has revealed how he helped Jesse Lingard come back the star way after cautioning him against wasting too much time on social media.
The young star drew the boss'anger after posting the holiday video of himself and Marcus Rashford joking on Instagram.
Solskjaer quickly fired a subtle advice at the forward and told him to face his personal development instead of wasting time responding to trolls on Twitter and IG.
The advice seemed to have worked well as the England international played a prominent role in United's wins over Manchester City and Tottenham.
Although the young forward has not recorded any goal or assist this season, Solskjaer believed he can continue with his impressive form and score when Reds face City in the first leg of Carabao Cup at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
''Jesse has had his ups and downs, as I've spoken about before. But against City and Tottenham there were two examples of how important he can be for us in different games,'' Solskjaer.
''We want him back scoring and making assists. No one runs as much and he's a great trigger for our pressing game.
''He's a lively bubbly character but I don't think you see as much social media from Jesse as you used to. He's got his head down, he's working hard and getting back to the Jesse I knew,'' the Norwegian boss submitted.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Paul Pogba will not be leaving Old Trafford during the January transfer window.
Speculation about the Frenchman's exit from the club grew in the last few weeks after he was excluded from the Red Devils' last two Premier League encounters.
