Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left Jesse Lingard in no doubt he needed to improve against Manchester City on Wednesday as he was caught screaming at the midfielder during Manchester United’s 1-0 win.
Trailing 3-1 after the first leg of their League Cup semi-final, United secured their second victory at City this season thanks to Nemanja Matic’s first-half strike but couldn’t find a second goal to take the game to extra time.
And in a tense second half, the cameras picked up Solskjaer giving Lingard a word of warning with the rather straight to the point instruction: “One more time and you’re f*cking off.”
Lingard can’t have taken the advice on board, given he was replaced just seven minutes later by Andreas Pereira.
YES OLE! ‘One more time and you’re f**king off!’
Ole’s dark side finally shows itself shouting at Lingard! Soooo much time for this! pic.twitter.com/DJnNhg6Lne
