The Jesse Lingard Story: UNTOLD is now available to air on All 4, with the Nottingham Forest star opening up on his battle against mental health.

The Reds forward has chosen to make this brave documentary as he opens up on the lows that have impacted his on-field performance in the past.

Lingard left Manchester United in the summer after a long-standing association with the Old Trafford giants.

In the documentary, he opens up on how events of his private life started to take a toll on his career and this looks like a must-watch.

What do we know about The Jesse Lingard Story: UNTOLD?

One thing we do know is that Lingard is supremely brave.

It’s not stereotypical for modern-day professional athletes to speak so openly about matters involving mental health.

As a result, the Forest man should be applauded for having the coverage to produce something so up close and personal.

Mental health is so important, particularly when it comes to urging men to be more open and seek help if it’s required.

Some snippets have already been quoted in the newspapers from the show.

Lingard told the Guardian that his lowest ebb came following a game for Manchester United against Derby.

He was abused by United fans whilst getting back on the team bus.

Lingard recalls on the show: “I just felt so much scrutiny, especially after the Derby game and I was getting abuse as I got on the bus.

“I can normally take it but sometimes it gets to a point where it’s like: ‘Ahh, I can’t even be bothered doing this anymore.'”

Forest fans will surely tune into this show to support Lingard.

Given that men opening up and admitting that they’re struggling is still something of a stigma, he deserves immense credit for using his platform in this way.
