Man Utd midfielder Jesse Lingard defends elaborate goal celebrations


Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has defended his elaborate goal celebrations.

Lingard was at it again after scoring in victory at Middlesbrough.

But the Warrington-born forward insists he is not concerned about the criticism. “I think in sport you’ve just got to do what makes you happy,” said Lingard..

“Obviously I enjoyed the moment and when you score it is a big thing, so you’ve got to take it in your stride.”.

Is he aware it rubs some supporters up the wrong way?.

“No, not really,” he added. “I don’t really look it on social media too much and what people write..

“You’ve got to perform for your club and if you make the manager happy, then that’s the most important thing..

“He (Jose Mourinho) just wants us to be happy. I think football makes you happy and you’ve got to enjoy it.”
