Belgium international Romelu Lukaku has thanked Michael Carrick for transforming him into a better player during the second half of last season. The 24-year-old joined United on a £75m deal from Everton last summer and despite his mid-season struggles, he ended the campaign on a good note with 29 goals across all competitions.
Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has responded to criticism over his recent goalscoring in all competitions. The Belgium international joined the Red Devils from Everton last summer, and he has since cemented a regular spot in the starting line-up.
Lukaku started the campaign in fine fashion with 11 goals in just 10 matches, but the month of October brought no joy as he failed to score in six appearances. Despite his lean streak, Jose Mourinho has recently insisted that the Belgian’s position is ‘untouchable’ and Lukaku has now come forward to answer his critics.
