esse Lingard says he relishes his status as “an influencer” - and that criticism of his off-field interests will not force him to change.

In addition to his 6.2 million followers on Instagram and 1.3 million on Twitter, Lingard has close to 250,000 subscribers to a YouTube channel he launched and has his own clothing label, JLingz, and starred in advertising campaigns for JD Sports and Coca-Cola.
