Ralph Rangnick says there is “no problem” between him and Jesse Lingard, who is in Manchester United’s squad for the Burnley game on Tuesday night.
Lingard was ruled out of Friday’s FA Cup fourth round defeat to Middlesbrough after United’s interim manager said the striker needed some time to ‘clear his mind’.
But soon after, Lingard took to social media to rebut Rangnick’s comments, insisting that “the level of the reserve is free” despite being expelled from United’s board in January amid interest from Newcastle and West Ham.
Despite public dissent, Rangnick says the pair have a “very good relationship” and the 29-year-old is now back on the team alongside Edinson Cavani for a visit to Burnley in the Premier League on Tuesday.
The club advised me to leave for personal reasons! But I have a free space in my head, and I will always be a professional when necessary and give 100%.

Asked about Lingard and Cavani’s readiness to travel to Turf Moor, the German said: “Both are free and they will both be part of the squad for tomorrow’s game against Burnley.
“Both are top pros and both trained well.
“As for Jesse, I have a very good relationship with him. He knows that I would be ready to let him go, at least until there was a problem with Mason (Greenwood). All other things have been mentioned. , is he [Lingard] mentioned some personal problems.
“But now we have to look to the future. There are no problems between me and Jesse, and vice versa.
“I’m happy to have him in the squad and he will be a member of the squad for tomorrow’s game. »
