Lingard couldn’t resist teasing the fans by making it appear that a certain player is there at Carrington training complex ready to complete their medical. By ‘talking to the club doctor’ introducing himself “Morning Doc” followed by “Oh hello, welcome. Are you okay? How are you? I hope you enjoy your time here. Enjoy your medical.” Jesse had a real laugh before training just as expected from the 25 year old.
