Jesse Lingard Reveals His Happiness To Score Goals With His Idol, Cristiano Ronaldo – In 2003 Cristiano Ronaldo taught soccer skills to Jesse Lingard who was still a child at Manchester United’s academy, now in 2021 the two have scored goals together in one match at Old Trafford.

Jesse Lingard expressed his happiness at being able to score with his idol Cristiano Ronaldo in the same match as Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League match on Saturday (11/9) night WIB.

The England international initially sat on the bench as the Portugal forward started in his second debut for the club after completing his move from Juventus during the final days of last summer’s transfer window.

Cristiano Ronaldo immediately scored Manchester United’s opening two goals in the game before Jesse Lingard then got the chance to come on to replace Jadon Sancho in the 66th minute when the score was still 2-1.

The arrival of the 28-year-old winger proved to be positive as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side then doubled their lead through Bruno Fernandes’ 80th minute goal before Jesse Lingard finally got his name on the scoresheet late in the second half.

This match is Cristiano Ronaldo’s first match for Manchester United since leaving the club 12 years ago, and 18 years since he met the young Jesse Lingard at the academy. The Red Devils.

The 28-year-old, who joined Manchester United’s youth team at the age of seven, is now posting inspirational messages on social media after playing in the same senior team as his idol.

“Big boys dream,” he wrote on Twitter by sharing a picture of his meeting with Cristiano Ronaldo at the club’s academy before being in the same first-team squad and scoring goals in the same game.

Now Jesse Lingard may not ultimately regret his failed move to West Ham United over the summer as he has now had the rare dream opportunity of wearing the same jersey as Cristiano Ronaldo.
