Juan Mata, who was also in the running, gave his vote to Lingard on United’s post on Instagram.

“He’s been with us in the first team for a few seasons now and this season he’s really scoring and playing his best football and playing with confidence,” Mata said. “I think he’s matured as a player and we are very happy with him because he’s helping the team with important goals.”
