“I have been with the club since the age of 7 and I feel great pride every time I pull the shirt on. To have scored in two cup finals for my boyhood club were immensely proud moments for me and my family,” Lingard said in comments posted on the club’s website on Thursday.
“As a team, we have already won a major trophy (the EFL Cup) this season and I look forward to helping us win many more under this great manager,” he added.
