Former Indian versatile player Yuvraj Singh shared a photo with Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard on his social media handles, which plunged fans into a frenzy. Pictured are both doing the ‘JLingz’ celebration, used by Lingard every time he scores a goal. “JLingz !! My man !! Saw you, I was wonderful to touch you! I wish you a wonderful season ahead! More power for you,” Yuvraj shared the picture with Lingard on his social media handles writing.
Indian actor Ranveer Singh also responded to Yuvraj and Lingard’s photo, which was shared by Premier League India’s Instagram handle. Ranveer wrote in response to the image: “Cool”.
Yuvraj is a massive Manchester United fan and his love for the club is no secret to fans. He even praised Lingard’s goal when the ‘Red Devils’ defeated West Ham United 2-1 in September.
“What an amazing match! It’s amazing how sport teaches us how to bounce back Jesse Lingard was a villain a few nights ago and today he is a hero against his previous team, and then David de Gea saves the day “Disappointed but enlightened face. FYI what ref about the penalty kick on our side?” Yuvraj tweeted.

Last year, Yuvraj also had a live chat on Facebook with another Manchester United star, Marcus Rashford. Yuvraj also revealed during the session how he has been a fan of the club for the past two decades.
He named Ruud van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs as his favorite Manchester United players.
Lingard has not played much for his club this season. In 8 appearances so far he has scored two goals over all competitions. He was also left out of England’s squad for the next 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
England beat Albania 5-0 at Wembley on Friday with captain Harry Kane scoring a hat-trick in the first half.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently 6th in the Premier League table, nine points behind leaders Chelsea after 11 games.
