Jesse Lingard: Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick says there are ‘no problems’ between the pair | Football News



Ralf Rangnick says there are “no problems” between himself and Jesse Lingard, who is included in the Manchester United squad to face Burnley on Tuesday night.

Lingard was left out of Friday’s FA Cup fourth-round defeat against Middlesbrough after the United interim manager said the forward needed to take some time off to “clear up his mind”.

But Lingard took to social media soon after to contradict Rangnick’s comments, insisting his “headspace is clear” despite the United board blocking him from leaving in January amid interest from Newcastle and West Ham.

Despite the public disagreement, Rangnick says the pair have a “very good relationship” and the 29-year-old is now back in the squad, along with Edinson Cavani for Tuesday’s visit to Burnley in the Premier League.

Asked about Lingard and Cavani’s availability for the trip to Turf Moor, the German said: “Both are available and they will both be part of the squad for tomorrow’s game at Burnley.

“Both are top professionals and both have been training well.

“With regard to Jesse, I have a very good relationship with him. He knows that I would’ve been willing to let him go, at least until the issue with Mason (Greenwood) came up. All the other things have been spoken about, he [Lingard] mentioned some personal issues.

“But we have to look forward now. There are no problems whatsoever between myself and Jesse, and vice versa.

“I’m happy to have him in the squad and he will be a member of the squad for tomorrow’s game.”
