Jesse Lingard's reaction
"Me and Jose had a good relationship generally, though, I have to say. He was good to me. Before all the injury stuff, he trusted me, put me in for important games.
''We won trophies and he made me a winner. He could just bring out that side in you.
"He also liked to have a personal connection with his players. Sometimes I’d look at my phone and I’d be getting a random FaceTime from him. Just out of nowhere — just to check in.
"I used to find it so strange at first. He’d call and be like, 'Hey Jesse, what are you doing?''
