Manchester United forward, Jesse Lingard, has opened up about the psychological strain placed on his team-mates, during the nightmare run that led to the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho left United with the club languishing in sixth place in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Liverpool, after a catastrophic performance led to a 3-1 defeat at Anfield in his final game.

The club lost five of their 17 league games this season under Mourinho in total.

And Lingard, who scored twice as United beat Cardiff City 5-1 in caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first game in charge, says that the lift the squad has received since the Norwegian returned to Old Trafford has been palpable.

“Yeah of course it affects you.

“But on the other hand you’ve got to live your life, I guess.

“I mean in some games you’re not going to play well every game.

“It means you have some dips but when like I said it’s back to basics, that one-two touch, run and tackle, do the things off the ball maybe when you come to the training pitch,” he told the Premier League.
