One supporter of the Premier League club has been accused of racially abusing the player with several Twitter users claiming they heard the ‘N’ word shouted in the video.
A Manchester United fan was abusing Jesse Lingard after the game against Derby yesterday. Is this justified abuse or is he crossing the line? pic.twitter.com/fBGunL5SFW

“Jesse, you’re shit, Jesse, you’re shit, Jesse, you’re shit, Jesse, fuck off” one fan can be heard shouting whilst another says “zero goals and zero assists in 2019, you’re dead.”
It is not yet entirely clear if everyone involved were all United fans and how many people were hurling abuse towards Lingard.
Lingard’s team-mate Luke Shaw appeared by the bus door to furiously complain at the fans after hearing the abuse as they left Pride Park on Thursday evening.
Plenty of people gave their reaction to the viral video showing the vile abuse Jesse Lingard gets from fans as he boards the coach at Derby…
I’ve deleted that video of a fan abusing Jesse Lingard at the team coach, because I’m not giving them attention. If you have nothing nice to say, just don’t say anything. Footballers are human too and taking things to a players face is bang out of order. It’s not funny.

I can't stand Lingard to be honest but that is weird, and if I heard what I think I heard towards the end of that video then that bloke needs dragging out of the crowd and banning for life.

How do you know it’s not a Derby fan?

So angry at these kind of people how can they call themselves a Manchester United fan. This is not acceptable yeah he’s not been playing the greatest but he’s a Manchester United man through and through he doesn’t deserve this.?

My god. You’ve got serious problems if you feel you need or it’s acceptable to do this.

Jesse Lingard whether you hate him love him doesn't warrant the abuse from fans especially that video clip near the team bus. Just hounding him like they did with Tom Cleverley doesn't make you big & hard makes you look like a complete mong. This fan base is toxic
