Lingard, who played more than 200 games for the English Premier League (EPL)
powerhouse Manchester United and also played for the England national team in the World Cup,
was officially announced to join Seoul this morning.
He is the world’s most famous foreign player ever recruited to the K-League.
Lingard is a former Manchester United youth player and played for the England national team until 2021, including the 2018 Russia World Cup.
He has never left an English club, including Manchester United, where he played the longest.
Jesse Lingard is said to have received offers from Europe or the Middle East
after spending the 2022-2023 season at EPL Nottingham Forest, but chose to go to Korea.
Lingard said, “At other clubs, the details of the negotiations were only exchanged verbally,
but Seoul showed passion by preparing everything in writing and coming to Manchester to check my physical condition.”
He added, “I made a decision at that moment and did not consider other clubs.” He said.
It is also true that there are concerns about his physical condition and performance as he has been without a team for about half a year after his contract with Nottingham ended.
Lingard said he “knows” about this and showed confidence that he has been in good shape.
He said, “I knew that I would find a team and sign a contract by January,
so I trained twice a day with a personal trainer in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) to improve my physical condition.
I can build up my body well by the opening of the K-League (March 1).
Lingard added, “I have a dream I want to achieve in Seoul, and I want to be on the field as soon as possible,” adding, “My goal is to lift the trophy and win.
“I have personal goals, but first of all, I will focus on helping the team get three points and win,” he emphasized.
