‘Dream big’ – Lingard Urges fans as he shares Ronaldo then & now image after successfully pasting his name on the score sheet as at Saturday Night 4-1 win against newcastle.
Jesse Lingard has urged every aspiring footballer to “dream big” when sharing a then and now image of him with Manchester United hero Cristiano Ronaldo.
The England international lined up alongside a five-time Ballon d’Or winner in a Premier League meeting with Newcastle as a Portuguese superstar made his return to Old Trafford.
That outing came 12 years after Ronaldo’s last for United and some 18 after his path first crossed with a starry-eyed youngster in the Red Devils’ academy system.
HOW DID LINGARD MEET RONALDO BEFORE NOW
A promising youngster linked up with the Red Devils in 2000, with Ronaldo moving to Manchester as a talented teenager three years later.
It was during that initial stint with the Red Devils that the Portuguese first met Lingard.
It would be 2014 before a promising playmaker made his senior bow for United, with Ronaldo having moved on to Real Madrid by then.
Lingard took in a number of loan spells before making a breakthrough at his parent club, with another taken in last season at West Ham.
