Jesse Lingard has vowed to deliver his best performance

Jesse Lingard (FC Seoul) has vowed to deliver his best performance under head coach Kim Ki-dong.

Lingard spoke to the media after the team’s open training session at GS Champions Park in Guri, Gyeonggi-do, on Wednesday. Lingard, who went on vacation to England after the Hana Bank K League 1 2024 3rd Round 2-0 win over Jeju United on the 16th, said, “It was very good, the coach allowed me to take a vacation and I saw my family. I was mentally well rested,” he said, adding, “Now we have to prepare for (the league resumption) again.”

This season, Seoul made a surprise signing of Lingard from Manchester United of the Premier League. He was the center of attention at the World Cup with England.

I thought I should talk about it more loudly because it’s a chance to make my name and Seoul known in Europe. It’s actually a joke,” he laughed.

“As a coach, I think you have to lead the same way whether it’s Lingard or the younger players. If you treat a player differently because he’s a name player, you’re not leading the team. I will continue to lead the team from the same position.”

Lingard was grateful for Kim’s consideration.

“He met with me personally after that interview and explained to me enough to say, ‘I didn’t mean it like that,'” Lingard said. “I was a little bit like that at first, but (now) I always try to do my best. I think I need to try harder to fit in with his style.” Coincidentally, during his vacation in the United Kingdom, Lingard posted on his social media accounts, “The less you respond to negative people the more peaceful your life will become.” Some reacted that Lingard was taking a shot at Kim.

However, Lingard said, “It has nothing to do with soccer or the coach. “It had nothing to do with soccer or the coach,” he said, adding, “I usually take pictures when I pass by and see something that motivates me. I took it because it was a good quote, nothing more,” he summarized.

“I haven’t competed in an official competition in over a year, so I have to admit that I need time. “Personally, I’m in a good place right now,” he said, 바카라사이트 추천 “I’m still out there, just not full-time. The coach is giving me time, so I think it’s up to me. I’m thinking about increasing my training volume to get my fitness up as soon as possible,” he said, promising even better things to come.

Meanwhile, Lingard added: “My daughter knows I’m a soccer player. I don’t know if she knows I’m a star, but I think she’s aware of the situation,” he said, adding, “My whole family is coming to Korea in the summer, including my daughter.”
