“Why I almost quit Football”, Jesse Lingard admits he almost gave up

Jesse Lingard has been in sensational form this season, just what he showed as England reached the 2018 World Cup semi-finals and made him a regular at Manchester United.

However, he now admits having the thought of quitting football before his loan move to Westham United.

The 28-year-old winger lost his form after the World Cup, losing his place in the Manchester United first team under Ole.

While speaking on a YouTube-based talk show, Jesse Lingard confessed having a meltdown as his mental health deteriorated to the extent he contemplated quitting or at least taking a time-out from the game.

“I could have been like ‘nah, I don’t want to do it, I quit, I give up’.

“But the fight in me always brings me back to life,” he said. Westham United still has a good chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season and it is partly due to the fine form from the former Manchester United forward.
