Rio Ferdinand has given his opinion about the possibility of Jesse Lingard joining the Gunners.
The season started forJesse Lingard
in the worst possible way as he couldn’t find any place for himself in the starting line-up of theManchester United
was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s option since his arrival.
However, since joiningWest Ham
with a loan deal, Jesse Lingard has become a key player for the Hammers and he is currently wanted by many top clubs includingArsenal
. Rio Ferdinand however thinks it is impossible.
“Yeah but you know what, they [Arsenal fans] wouldn’t have him there,"
Ferdinand said onVibe With FIVE
“The way he moonwalked off that pitch once, they wouldn’t have it. The fans would rip the place apart. He disrespected the Emirates in a way that hadn’t been seen.
“Listen, West Ham will have a fight to get him, by the way, because I think other teams are going to be like: ‘Listen, we want him!’
“He’s not going to go to Arsenal over West Ham, obviously but there will be other teams. He ain’t going nowhere near Arsenal.”
