Lingard revealed his plans on Instagram on Friday ahead of June 15 when wearing masks on public transport will become compulsory.

He said: "Hello everybody, I hope all is well. I hope everybody is staying safe. As you know from Monday 15th June, it is mandatory that everybody wears face masks on public transport.

"So I have decided to create these, JLingz face masks to protect you and others. Of course, all proceeds will go to the NHS, to help to continue the support they are doing.

"They are doing an amazing job and this is a little thank you from me. So everybody stay safe out there. Lots of love, Jesse."

It is the latest admirable move from the Old Trafford squad after Lingard's close pal Marcus Rashford's amazing fundraising efforts.

The Red Devils have donated £240,000 to global youth charities through the Manchester United Supporters' Clubs.

They are helping out in the community by making calls to over 3,000 vulnerable elderly and disabled supporters and topping up NHS resources with club medical supplies amid shortage fears.

Footballers using their platform for good in the wake of coronavirus and the Black Lives Matter movement may have convinced many to change their perceptions of well paid stars.

TV pundit Jamie Carragher lauded the current crop of wealthy stars.

He wrote in The Telegraph: "My fear upon my retirement as a player - especially having spent so much time watching academy football - was there was a growing disconnection between youngsters, some who become multi-millionaires by their early 20s, and the fans they represent.

"England’s current group of elite players are stronger, more independent and willing to take greater risks with their career than those before. This generation is not pampered. It is enlightened and pioneering."
