Jesse Lingard was born in an average English family in Warrington.
Jesse Lingard childhood
was just like any other kid back then. He went to William Beamont Community High school which was located in his hometown. It was at this high school when Jesse showed the first signs of his capability to become a top level football player. After a while Jesse became famous for his beyond average football skills and everybody in school loved to have Jesse on his side during a football match.
Although he was shorter than other kids in Jesse Lingard age, his pace and technique gave him the upper hand and made him one of the most talented kids in his school. Because of that,
Jesse Lingard parents
decided to put their son in a football academy in order to develop his talents and skills. Therefore they signed up little Jesse in Penketh United Academy. But it didn’t take long for the managers of Penketh United Academy to realize that Jess Lingard has some big potential and could benefit from a higher level football academy.
So after a few months when Jesse Lingard was just eight years old, he moved to the Manchester United Football Academy. One of the
top facts about Jesse Lingard
is that before he joins the Penketh United Academy, he used to play for Fletcher Moss Rangers which is located at West Didsbury, Manchester. It is the same football club that developed some well-known football players such as Wes Brown,Marcus Rashford
, and Danny Welbeck.
Jesse Lingard has a good and solid relationship with his family. Although there are not much top facts about Jesse Lingard family members, we know that he has an elder brother named Louie and two younger brother and sister. In 2018 when Jesse was one of the key players of England squad in theFIFA World Cup
in Russia, his brother Louie was in Russia to support Jesse and his teammates.
Then in the middle of tournament, Jesse Lingard posted a picture of himself holding a phone with this caption: “No mum, I’m not coming home. It’s...” referring to England that is about to win the World cup. That post took social media by storm and it was enough for Kristy, Jesse’s mom, to fly all the way down from England to Russia to watch his son trying to bring IT home! Although England didn’t manage to reach to the finals after losing to Croatia in semi-finals, the pictures of Jesse Lingard hugging his mother in the stands will be remembered for ever.
Supporting each other in the Lingards family isn’t a one-way road. Just a few years after the Russia World Cup, it was Jesse’s turn to take care of his siblings and support his mother Kristy when she was struggling with depression. Jesse talked about this recently and told that it was such a hard time that even impacted his form in Manchester United since he wasn’t able to give his 100% to the team. That explains why after putting a decent performance in the World Cup, Jesse didn’t live up to expectation in Manchester United and became a bench warmer.
Before Jesse Lingard introduce himself as a professional football player who makes a lot money playing for a big club like Manchester United, he was dating a beautiful girl named Emma Hyde. At that time Jesse was a youth player in Manchester United Academy and didn’t make much money from playing football. Later
Jesse Lingard girlfriend
, Emma said in an interview that she was the one paying the bills and taking care of Jesse back then. Even when Jesse suffered an injury, Emma supported him during the recovery time at the cost of quitting her job.
But things didn’t end well between Jesse and Emma. When Jesse made his way toManchester United
senior team, he became famous and was making a huge chunk of money. Then he decided to end his relationship with Emma Hyde and Emma didn’t take that easy at all. First Emma was made to leave the apartment she was living in since it was Jesse who rent the place. Then she realized that her luxury car, which Jesse gave her as a present, was gone. She got so pissed that even tried to report a car theft for that but the police said since it was officially Jesse’s car and he used his own key to take it, there was no theft to report.
Things were getting ugly after the breakup but Emma was still hoping for Jesse to come around and even was thinking about marring him in the future. But Jesse had other ideas. He asked her out some time later and apparently in that date Jesse made it clear that there is no future for them as a couple. After that they both moved on and up to this day, Jesse Lingard didn’t experience another long-term relationship.
You would except from a wealthy football player at Jesse Lingard age to have children of course. But we can’t talk about
Jesse Lingard children
since he has only one baby girl named Hope. Hope’s mother is Rebecca Halliday who is a 35 years old manager at a fitness firm. Also there are some shots of Rebecca modeling some fitness wear so we could assume that she is a fitness model too. Jesse and Rebecca met on a night out after one of Manchester United games against Everton and soon after that Jesse got the news that he is about to become a father.
Rebecca isn’t Jesse Lingard girlfriend at the moment but she has a friendly relationship with Jesse and they are both taking care of their little girl, Hope. Jesse Lingard seems very happy that he is a father now and as he mentioned recently, Jesse is trying to make his daughter proud of him and Hope has been one of the best parts of
Jesse Lingard personal life
. Especially after some dark days because of Jesse’s mother condition, having a beautiful baby girl could help a lot.
Although he started his career at Manchester United which is one of the richest football clubs in the world,

. Now at the age of 28, Jesse Lingard net worth is estimated to be at least €30M.
In 2017 Jesse signed his latest contract with Manchester United. With this contract Jesse Lingard salary is €3M per year. Which means
Jesse Lingard salary
is €250,000 per month. In order to have a clear idea of how much money is that, imagine that an average man in England should work at least seven years to earn as much as Jesse Lingard earns in a single month. Currently he has one year left of his contract but we couldn’t say for certain if Manchester United is willing to give him a new contract with higher salary.

On the August of 2014 in a League match against Swansea City, Jesse Lingard played his first ever game for Manchester United at the age of 21 years old. But again he was loaned out to gain some more experience. In the time span of 2012-2015 Jesse Lingard was loaned out to Leicester City, Birmingham,Brighton

Jesse Lingard stats
it’s good to keep in mind that after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement there were several seasons that Man United was struggling in thePremier League
. Surely that had its impacts on players and Jesse Lingard was no exception. That would explain why Jesse Lingard stats were not too impressive in his early years as an attacking midfielder. Also Jesse Lingard has played 27 international games for England and scored 4 goals and assisted 4 times for the Three Lions.
After some poor seasons under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Man United, in the winter of 2021 the club decided to loan him out again.

Jesse Lingard stats at West Ham are 9 goals and 4 assists in just 11 games which is extraordinary!
Jesse Lingard jersey number at West Ham is number 11 but that’s not his preferred number. At Manchester United Jesse wears the Number 14 and he admitted that it is his favorite number because the Arsenal legend Thierry Henry used to wear it. So it’s fair to say that Thierry Henry was one of Jesse’s childhood heroes but certainly he wasn’t the only one. One of the top facts about Jesse Lingard is that he always admired the Spaniard creative midfielder Andres Iniesta although he plays in a deeper position than Jesse Lingard.
