Man Utd star Jesse Lingard shares 'Jesse 2.0' targets and motivational notes during amazing West Ham loan transfer spell

MANCHESTER UNITED star Jesse Lingard has revealed his 'Jesse 2.0' targets that drove him on during his superb loan spell at West Ham.

The England playmaker shared a post thanking his analyst from last season and it included a shot of a whiteboard full of motivational notes.



Lingard, 28, who narrowly missed out on a spot in Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 England squad, enjoyed an impressive spell boosting West Ham’s attack from January to June this year.

The Cheshire-born forward netted nine goals and provided five assists in 16 Prem appearances for David Moyes’ Hammers. 

And his efforts helped the team finish sixth in the top-flight last term and qualify for the Europa League. 

It has now emerged that his stunning form was thanks in some part to the work of analyst Alexiadis Alexandros.

Lingard shared a picture of him alongside Alexandros and thanked him publicly for his contribution.

He wrote: "Thank you @alexiadis_alexandros for the analysis last year and congratulations on getting your new coaching role fully deserved.

"Now lets get ready for the new season."

The 29-cap Three Lions international also revealed the targets he set himself in East London.

Under 'application', phrases such as 'positive attitude', 'confidence' and 'belief' are scrawled in pen.

'BIG GAME PLAYER'

The Hammers' fixtures were also listed with desired outcomes including 'shots', 'goals', 'assists', 'take-ons' and 'man-of-the-match' also written down.

As well as the targets, Lingard's motivational board also featured the words 'dynamic', 'intensity' and 'leadership'.

And phrases encouraging him to 'be yourself' and be a 'big game player' were also noted.
