Ex-Manchester United star, Jesse Lingard, has received words of encouragement from Patrice Evra after posting another video of a solo training session.
The former England international remains a free agent on the back of his release by Nottingham Forest at the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
The 30-year-old playmaker would have expected to have found a new club by now, but contracts are proving hard to come by.
Lingard is doing his best to keep himself in shape, as he works with personal instructors, and will be eager to see his patience and persistence rewarded at some stage.
He has spent time at Inter Miami’s training facility, while also taking in trial spells with West Ham and Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Ettifaq.
Evra is among those urging Lingard to keep his head up, with the former United defender backing his one-time Old Trafford team-mate to find a new club in the not-too-distant future.
Evra has responded to Lingard’s latest video on social media by saying: “Your time coming soon brother keep working hard”.
Lingard struggled for form and fitness throughout his one-season stint at Forest, but he is a proven Premier League performer – with 232 appearances for United and 32 England caps to his name – and 2024 could be the year in which his career gets back on track.
