“Lingard plays for 3000 million won! A nightmare debut” English media Lingard happy soccer topic

Jesse Lingard (32-FC Seoul) is set to make his K League debut, and the British media has shown great interest.

On May 5 (KST), British media outlet The Mirror reported, “Former Manchester United star Lingard earns a staggering wage in Korea. He endured a nightmare debut,” the Mirror reported.

Earlier, Lingard made his K League debut against Gwangju FC in the first round of the ‘Hana Bank K League 1 2024’ at the Gwangju Football Stadium 홀덤사이트 on the 2nd.

Lingard was substituted for Kim Kyung-min in the 71st minute with the score 0-1. In his short time on the field, Lingard showed off his mid-range shots and sharp crosses. It gave Korean soccer fans something to look forward to. In the second half of stoppage time, he was cautioned for a rough tackle while trying to stop an opponent’s counterattack.

The Mirror said, “Lingard made his debut against Gwangju on the first day of the K League season. He came off the bench and received a yellow card. Lingard is happy with his decision to move to South Korea despite a significant drop in wages and a poor performance.

Lingard arrived in the K League with a lot of hype. The move of an England international and former Man United star to the K League surprised not only Korean fans but also the European soccer world.

‘Lingard signed a two-year contract with Seoul in February,’ says the Mirror. The move shocked the soccer world. Lingard said 26 clubs around the world wanted him, but he chose the club in the South Korean capital.

Lingard got his first taste of action almost a year later. ‘Lingard played in a first-team game for the first time since April 16, 2023, when he played for Nottingham Forest,’ the Mirror reported. The game didn’t go to plan as Seoul lost 0-2, with Lingard making a cameo appearance but picking up a yellow card.

The Mirror claims that Lingard’s weekly wages have plummeted by nearly 90%. ‘Lingard is reportedly earning £17,500 a week in Seoul,’ the Mirror said. That’s a lot of money in any other field, but it’s a fraction of his previous weekly wage. He was earning £18,000 a week at Nottingham Forest,’ the Mirror added tongue-in-cheek.

The Mirror reports that ‘Lingard earns around £910,000 a year in Seoul. But he has many other business interests, including a chain of chicken restaurants and a clothing brand. The enthusiastic Lingard says that Korea seems to be a good fit for him.

“I’m really excited,” Lingard says. I’m ready for a new challenge. I’m ready to embrace the culture. It’s a new chapter in my career. I want to enjoy playing soccer again and put smiles on the faces of my fans. I want to show the Korean fans what I can do.”

“Seoul flew to Manchester to watch me train, and they came with a paper contract. The commitment that Seoul showed showed how much they wanted me. I wanted to go to the club and repay them,” he said.

Seoul’s next game is on October 10 against Incheon United. This time, it’s at home. The Mirror says: ‘Lingard makes his Seoul home debut on Sunday and will hope his nightmare debut doesn’t undermine his chances of starting. The Seoul World Cup Stadium has a capacity of 66,000,” adding that Lingard is expected to start.
