Video: Manchester United's Jesse Lingard tries to show off but manages to burn himself

Manchester United 3

To be fair, he kinda deserved it for showing off.

Over the years, there have been loads of players who have managed to get themselves injured in really, really bizarre ways. 

David James injured himself after playing way too much PlayStation, Ever Banega managed to run himself over with his car and Santiago Canizares missed the World Cup after dropping a bottle of aftershave on his foot! 

We're not entirely sure how you would explain how you've managed to injure yourself in a ridiculous way to your boss, but we reckon it's an awkward conversation! 

And it looks like Manchester United's Jesse Lingard almost needed to have such a conversation with Louis van Gaal after he managed to have a bit of a fail... on pancake day! 

While we're sure Van Gaal won't be over the moon about his players stuffing their faces with loads of pancakes just a few days before a match, he'd probably be angrier with what Lingard almost managed to do:

Just have a look at this: 

Yep! Lingard managed to burn himself after trying to show off his pancake flipping... what a fool!

We reckon Van Gaal wouldn't he happy if he saw this so Lingard better put in a good performance when Man United take on Sunderland in the Premier League's early kick-off.
