He recently revealed that Southgate has shown a lot of support and belief in him, and he is very grateful.According to him, he made sure he was in regular contact with Gareth even when he wasn’t playing, and the national coach kept giving him advice on what next for his career.
Lingard added that he simply focused on getting the right move, whether in England or out of England because he was fed up of not playing.
His words, “He’s shown a lot of support and belief in me, he gave me my England debut, which I’m proud of,”
“I still kept in contact with him even though I wasn’t playing, just to get his advice on what I should do.”
“It was just about the right move, whether it was going out to Europe or staying in the Premier League.”
“He said, ‘If I was you, I would stay in the Premier League’. After that, it was about finding a Premier League side and West Ham fitted in perfectly.”
On return to the national team, “I’ve had to work hard and graft, and I still believe in myself to play at the highest level. If you work hard, you get the rewards in the end.”
