The attacking midfielder is on loan to Brighton and Hove Albion, and scored in their 3-0 win against Charlton on Saturday.

Lingard has enjoyed his time with the Seagulls, scoring two goals in 11 appearances, having had a stint with Birmingham City during the first half of the season.

He is focused on finishing the season strongly with Brighton but is also excited about going back to Old Trafford and hopes to emulate his boyhood idol.

The 21-year-old said: "Growing up at United, Ryan Giggs is my hero.

"He is one of those flair players that excites fans. I like players who run at people and dribbling is one of my main attributes. People love to see it, you have to get the supporters out of their seats.

"I'll go back to Old Trafford with sky-high confidence. Players out on loan have got to keep playing our own game and see where it takes us.

"The games left here are going to be tough but, if we take the mentality we had this week against Leicester and Charlton into these games, we are going to push on."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
