Rivals and friends react to Lingard’s show-off holiday picture on Instagram

We’re all entitled to some fun and relaxation after a stressful year at the office, right? Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard has certainly warranted a relaxing getaway after 27 appearances in the Premier League last season.

The 26-year-old forward has posted an Instagram snap showing him enjoying his time in Miami Beach in a rather “provocative” state and it didn’t take long until the rest of the footballing world took notice.

Some of his fellow Premier League rivals were the first to jump on the pic and show their admiration for the impressive physique Lingard is demonstrating on social media. Kean Bryan, Sheffield United’s midfielder and one of the newcomers to the Premier League, posted an emoji admiring the Englishman’s shape.

There was, of course, some banter included from friends as well as admiration from teammates from United’s academy. Kenji Gorre, who spent time at Old Trafford back in his youth days, couldn’t resist from bantering a bit but also complementing Lingard while the 18-year-old academy player Dion McGhee just admired the pic.
