MAC HAS FAITH IN LINGARD
STEVE McClaren insists Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard, 22, is going to be the perfect weapon for Derby in their hunt for an automatic promotion spot.
The England under-21 midfielder arrived from United in January, having started Louis van Gaal’s first competitive game as manager back in August before being ruled out with injury.
McClaren said: “Jesse is going to be a real asset for us.You see his threat, his pace and intelligence.
“We’ve seen that he can score goals; he can create, he’s quick, he’s lively. He’s been very impressive and I’m looking forward to him being part of the squad over the next few months.”
