Jesse Lingard (31, Nottingham Forest) has disappeared ahead of the match against his former team, Manchester United. Another reason was an unexpected injury.
Nottingham Forest lost 0-2 to Manchester United in the second leg of the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) semifinals in the 2022-2023 season held at Old Trafford (OT) in Manchester, England on the 2nd (hereinafter Korean time). This put Nottingham on their knees with an aggregate score of 0-5 and failed to advance to the final.
Lingard’s name was on the starting list announced an hour before the game. He was slated to lead the attack along with Sam Surridge, Gustavu Scarpa and Brennan Johnson.
However, when the match started, Lingard’s face could not be found. Emmanuel Dennis was seated on the left wing where he was supposed to be playing. Nottingham hastily announced via social media that “there is a late change to the lineup. Denis replaces Lingard”.
The reason for the replacement was a sudden injury. On this day, Lingard was injured during the warm-up before the match. According to a video released by ‘Sky Sports’ in the UK, he suddenly frowned while doing a simple stretch with his trainer, and it seems that a problem occurred in this scene.
Nottingham manager Steve Cooper explained after the match: “Lingard felt pain in his Achilles and we couldn’t take any risks. We need a team ready to play and he didn’t.” 카지노
With this, Lingard once again lowered his head in a confrontation with his former team. He visited OT for the first time in a long time in December of last year, but in the 7th minute of the second half, he grabbed his thigh and collapsed.
After recovering from a hamstring injury, Lingard visited OT again, but this time, the injury also made her weep. Roy Keane, a senior player who played for Nottingham and Manchester United, also lamented, saying, “It’s not the end of the world, but it’s not ideal. I hope Lingard doesn’t get seriously hurt.”
