Jesse Lingard, midfielder of Manchester United is fighting for his spot in the team and he knows how to bounce back from setbacks, said his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 28-year-old English professional footballer drew criticism after his stray pass gifted Swiss club Young Boys a last-gasp winner in the Champions League. However, Lingard redeemed himself by scoring a stunning late goal in Sunday’s 2-1 win at West Ham United.

Lingard flourished last season on loan at West Ham and earned a recall to the England squad. He scored two goals in four matches for Manchester this season.

“I think today (Sunday) was a good answer. You know Jesse wants to fight for his place. He wants to be part of a Man United team that he feels is going places,” said Solskjaer. “He’s really contributing … I’m so happy and pleased for him that he handles the setbacks, he handles the highs and the lows really well. He is becoming a grown man and he’s a very good player.”
