“I got a lot of offensive messages from fans. I was depressed enough without them. I felt like the whole world was on my shoulders. My mother was so severely depressed that she couldn’t deal with it. She had to leave and seek help. I stayed with my younger siblings then added the Englishman.
– I was absent. I went out on the field, but I didn’t want to play. I wasn’t going to throw football, I just needed a break. I approached the game with a blank mind. I didn’t want to play, so I was doing it wrong – said the footballer.
Lingard admitted that the climax was in early March 2020. He finally decided to open up to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
– In training I masked my depressed mood and anxiety. I was still trying to be normal Jesse, but I got to the point where I needed to talk to someone Lingard explained.
