Jose Mourinho teases Jesse Lingard during a routine interview (Picture: Manchester United)

Jose Mourinho teased Manchester United star Jesse Lingard for giving an interview after his goalscoring exploits against Real Madrid on Sunday.

The England international has been a bright spark for United on their pre-season tour of America and benefited from Anthony Martial’s brilliance to open the scoring against the Champions League holders during last weekend’s prestige friendly.

Jose Mourinho just told Ed Woodward to fill TWO positions at Man Utd press conference

Mourinho’s side eventually prevailed in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw. Back at United’s training base Lingard offered his thoughts on his and his teammates’ performance before his manager interjected, grabbed the academy graduate by the neck in playful fashion before quipping: ‘He scores a goal and now he gives an interview.’
