Lingard and Pogba joke around in the gym ahead of Chelsea showdown

Posted Thursday, October 18, 2018 by

JESSE LINGARD has been joking around in the gym with Paul Pogba ahead of Manchester United’s clash with Chelsea.

Lingard has been sidelined since Manchester United’s stalemate with Wolves back in September as he continues to recover from a muscle injury he’s carried since the World Cup.

After missing out on a England call-up last week as a result of the ongoing problem, Lingard has been working hard in the gym in a bid to return to the pitch as soon as possible.

Lingard took to Instagram this week to reassure fans he will be back soon.

“@jlingz back on the pitch soon, my injury will take time but will be back stronger than ever,” he wrote.

But in the meantime, Lingard has hitting the gym to focus on his recovery.

And the 25-year-old posted a brilliant update to his Instagram page with the help of team-mate Paul Pogba.

Using a very creepy filter, Lingard said: “Yeah session! Big boy session in the gym again.

“Tell them PP, what we doing in the gym though,” Lingard added before filming the Frenchman.

Pogba then showed off his bulging biceps before Lingard ended the video with “yeah!”

And some fans were quick to express their delight at seeing Lingard and Pogba in such a good mood during training.

“The positivity is back in the squad. I love dis,” one fan wrote.

Another said: “Good bonding before Chelsea match.”

“U guys r having a good time,” a third fan commented.

However, the clip didn’t go down well with everyone at Old Trafford.

“This is what I hate about Lingard. Acts like he's in school! Grow up!” one fan wrote.
