Paul Scholes confirms Jesse Lingard comments backlash, refuses to reveal what told told him afterwards

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has confirmed that he has endured backlash for revealing what Jesse Lingard told him about Man United dressing room. The former England international refused to reveal what Lingard told him after he apologised to the midfielder for revealing their personal talk.

Man United endured yet another disappointing 3-1 defeat against Arsenal on Saturday, a few days after they got trounced 4-0 at Liverpool.

After the defeat at the Emirates Stadium, Scholes revealed that Jesse Lingard told him that Manchester United’s dressing room is a disaster.

Speaking after the Arsenal loss, Scholes told DAZN: “I had a quick chat With Jesse [Lingard] the other day.

“I’m sure he won’t mind me saying – that dressing room is a disaster.”

Scholes has confirmed that he has endured a bit of criticism over unveiling what he and Jesse Lingard talked about in private.

The former Man United midfielder also claimed that Lingard told him more when he met with the 28-year-old to apologise for making their private talks public.

“I’ve had a little bit of stick for that,” Scholes told talkSPORT. “I don’t know why I did it! Honestly, sometimes words just come out your mouth.

“I have spoken to him since and probably best I don’t tell you what he said.”

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangick reacted to Scholes’ claim that Jesse Lingard told him the dressing room is a disaster.

“I don’t know, you have to ask Jesse Lingard,” the German boss said after the Arsenal loss.

“Obviously, after games like today, there is massive disappointment in the locker room. This is for me normal.”
