WATCH: Jesse Lingard FC Seoul debut RUINED by bobbly pitch!

Jesse Lingard recently made his FC Seoul debut, and the shocking state of the K League pitch the side were playing on ruined the perfect chance to make an impression for his new side!

Jesse Lingard was spotted in the airport in early February, on his way to Seoul in Korea to join the City’s premier football side in a new chapter of his career.

The Man Utd academy player enjoyed a 13-year stint in the English game, representing Utd’s first team, as well as Leicester City, West Ham United, and Nottingham Forest to name but a few.

Jesse Lingard joined FC Seoul in February this year, after being released by Nottingham Forest.

Sadly for the 31-year-old, his time with Nottingham Forest drew to a close recently, with lacklustre performances contributing to the decision to let him go.

Despite reports the previous Summer that his former side West Ham were interested in signing him, Lingard eventually found a new home for his game with FC Seoul in Korea.

Lingard made his debut for FC Seoul recently, and was struck with even more bad luck when the poor state of the K League pitch on which the match was being played caused him to miss an opportunity to score a debut, match-winning goal!

Things reportedly went from bad to worse when FC Seoul fans were said to boo Lingard following the miss!

Jesse Lingard will get his next opportunity to make an impression on his new team mates will come on Saturday the 16th, when FC Seoul take on Jeju!
