Lingard’s Move To Nottingham Forest Best For Him –Antonio

West Ham United striker Michail Antonio says Jesse Lingard made the right decision to have joined Nottingham Forest .

Recall that Lingard was linked with West Ham United after his contract expired with Manchester United.

However, the 29-year-old instead signed a one-year deal with Forest, and Antonio was disappointed with his decision.

Reacting to the move, Antonio told Footballer’s Football Podcast that Lingard shouldn’t be criticised for his decision.

“I just put it down to he wanted to go somewhere where he can play week in, week out. At West Ham there’s loads of competition – there’s me, there’s Said [Benrahma], there’s Declan [Rice], there’s Tomas [Soucek] and there’s Jarrod Bowen, because he plays in midfield and up top.

“So he might have thought he might not get as much game time [at West Ham] or he decided that Forest was better suited for him as it was closer to home. I don’t really know the reason behind it.

“I feel West Ham are probably better suited to push on and progress his career – obviously with playing European football and stuff like that – but he probably likes the challenge, wants to go there and enjoy his football and see where he can get Forest in the league.”
