Lingard must become consistent to be Manchester United great – Kanchelskis

Former Manchester United winger Andrei Kanchelskis believes that Jesse Lingard will have to add consistency to his game before he can be considered a hero at Old Trafford.

The 23-year-old has broken into the United’s first-team this season and has scored three goals in 11 league appearances but will need to string impressive performances together before he can win over the United faithful.

“I know he is a good player but not so consistent,” Kanchelskis exclusively told

“He plays well one game, then the next his level drops, followed by a poor game.

“Great players maintain their level.”

“You need to play at a certain level for Manchester United in every game like Dennis Irwin, season after season.

“Lingard must be consistent if he is to make it at Old Trafford.”
