Nottingham Forest attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard has hit out at Manchester United in a blistering attack.
Lingard claimed he was sold “false promises” by Manchester United and that his exit from Old Trafford may have been “political.”
The 30-year-old spoke ahead of Nottingham Forest’s Premier League tie with Manchester United on Tuesday night.
“I don’t know why I wasn't playing [during my time at Manchester United]. "I don’t know what the problem was, whether it was politics or whatever,” Lingard told the Telegraph.
“I still have not gotten an answer to this day. I didn’t even ask.
“I would rather that someone, out of respect for me being there that long, told me, ‘This is why you are not playing,' but I never got that.
“It was false promises. "I was training hard, and I was sharp; I was ready to play the games.”
