Man Utd icon Roy Keane praises Jesse Lingard for two goals in key Leicester win but slams ‘1/10 Bacardi & Coke dancing’


ROY KEANE heaped praise on in-form Jesse Lingard but could still afford a funny dig at his celebration.

The West Ham superstar showed Manchester United what they’re missing with two goals in a brilliant 3-2 win over Leicester.

Lingard now has eight goals in nine appearances in East London to lift West Ham into the top four.

His first was brilliant as he volleyed home Tomas Soucek’s pass on the edge of the box.

But Lingard’s celebration left a lot to be desired as Keane left viewers in stitches with a quick-witted quip.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the United legend said: “Credit to West Ham and Jesse Lingard, he’s been outstanding.

“What I give Jesse credit for is he’s turned up without much football at United.

“He obviously kept himself in good shape which is the sign of a good pro. He maybe took his eye off the ball off the field, but he always had that talent and it’s great to see it.

“It’s 1/10 (for the Lingard celebration). I used to do this dance before, usually after a load of Bacardi and Coke!”

Lingard bagged his second when Jarrod Bowen’s cross left him with a simple tap-in on the stroke of half-time.

The United loanee also played a key role in West Ham’s third before Kelechi Iheanacho set up a grandstand finish.

Fellow Sky pundit Micah Richards added: “That man Jesse Lingard again. He seems to be everywhere, always in the right place at the right time. The timing of his runs, it’s a wonderful finish.”

Lingard’s terrific form earned him a recall to England’s squad last month for the first time in two years.
