Lingard thanks Mourinho 'for the wisdom'

Jesse Lingard has thanked departed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho "for the wisdom".

United parted company with Mourinho on Tuesday after a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool saw the club slip to their worst start to a top-flight season since 1990-91.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was handed the reins until the end of the season, when the Red Devils plan to announce a permanent successor to the Portuguese.

Lingard became one of the first United players to publicly acknowledge Mourinho's departure on Wednesday.
