Lingard's future aim

Jesse Lingard hopes he can be part of a youth revolution at Manchester United that can emulate the success of the famed “Class of ’92”.

Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville all came through the ranks together and went on to become some of the most successful Manchester United players ever.

Now, Jesse Lingard – scorer of two goals in Saturday night’s 5-1 win against the Foxtel A-League All Stars – hopes to follow in their footsteps, alongside the likes of Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley.

“Obviously people want to copy the 1992 era,” Lingard told PA Sport and ManUtd.com. “We’ve got some young players back in Manchester who are also trying to break into the first-team. Hopefully they do and we can all break through together.

“I’ve known Danny and Tom from when I was little. They were at United with me when we were young and they’ve stayed, pushed on and progressed. Hopefully I can follow in their footsteps.”

Lingard’s well aware, however, that only a select few make it all the way through the youth
