The 26-year-old has endured a tough few months with the Red Devils, which has also seen dropped from the England squad due to his poor form.

Lingard on Thursday scored his first goal since January in United's 2-1 loss to Astana in the UEFA Europa League, a game where he captained a youthful side.

The midfielder has revealed he met Ronaldinho while in the United States a few years ago and was given some advice by the World Cup winner.

"I remember meeting him in America a few years ago, he said to me: 'No matter what, always enjoy football, always play with a smile on your face'," Lingard told the Mirror.

"After that, I constantly do that. It's mad watching videos of him, then actually meeting him and it felt mad for him to actually have that advice for me. You take that on board from one of the all-time greats.

"Everyone who dreamed of being a footballer and is a footballer, our dreams are made and we're in a nice position so all I can do is smile. Of course, you want to win the game but that enjoyment side is important."
