Lingard also backed former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s complaints about the Red Devils.
Recall that Ronaldo gave an explosive interview with British broadcaster Piers Morgan last year in which he slammed Manchester United, claiming that there had been "zero progress" since he left Old Trafford the first time back in 2009.
“You know what it is, I think they are so behind with everything,” Lingard told the diary of a CEO podcast.
“You see [Man] City’s facilities, you see Tottenham’s facilities when we go there with England and train at Tottenham like people are miles ahead.”
Asked precisely about Ronaldo’s claims, Lingard added: “Yeah, and he left [the first time in 2009] years ago." You want the best things, especially as [Manchester] United is one of the biggest clubs in the world. You want the best for the best.
“Of course, you want the best food, and you want the swimming pool, the jacuzzi, and the sauna, which are still there, but [they should be] a bit more modern." Modernize because you see the city’s facilities and you think, “Get up to date, catch up a little bit!” because they are way behind at the moment.
“Back in the day, we used to have table tennis, pool, a dart board, and it would keep you mentally happy and stuff like that. "But not anymore,” he said.
