Jesse Lingard looks to have split from girlfriend Jena Frumes after the Instagram model took to Twitter to confess she ‘enjoyed the ride’ with the Manchester United man.
Lingard met Frumes in the United States shortly before they began dating and the pair have been cosy for the last 15 months.
But the 24-year-old tackled rumours of a split head on to her 95,000 Twitter followers when she tweeted: ‘At least I can say I tried plus I enjoyed the ride. Wish you the best @JesseLingard’ but the tweet was later deleted.
The pair, despite living far apart, made effort to spend plenty of time together and Frumes regularly posted photos as she cuddled up to Lingard.
But with allegations of Lingard’s involvement with another woman, many drew their own conclusions from Frumes’ social media activity prior to this weekend.
News of the split, which came ahead of the win over Liverpool, left some fans concerned that Lingard’s head would not be focused for the game against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
But the charismatic winger started the match at Old Trafford on the bench before making a late cameo as United ran out 2-1 winners.
A first half brace from Lingard’s close friend Marcus Rashford stunned Liverpool and despite a second half own-goal from Eric Bailly, United strengthened their hold on second place.
