At the end of the game with Wolverhampton, which West Ham won yesterday by 3-2, Jessie Lingard and Portuguese Pedro Neto fought for reasons still on the pitch, with the two players having to be separated by teammates.
Lingard, who played a key role in the hammers’ triumph, later explained to Sky Sports microphones what happened. “He asked me ‘why do you play like that?’ But I don’t know what he meant, “said the English international midfielder, who is loaned to West Ham by Manchester United.
“Of course we won the game, I think he was referring to the moment when we tried to hold the ball, but that is part of the management of the game,” added Lingard, who scored one of West Ham’s goals in the match.West Ham moved up to fourth place in the Premier League after this triumph.
