Belgium captain Vincent Kompany says Romelu Lukaku feels he is the best in the world and has praised his ability.
Lukaku joined Manchester United from Everton, for a fee believed to have cost £75 million and has already scored for the club. T
The Belgium striker scored 25 goals in the premier league for Everton last season and is hungry for more.
“I want him to do well – except for in a few games this season!” Kompany told ESPN. “As long as we’re ahead of them, I’m happy for him to do really well.
“The one thing you get when you have Romelu is an incredible drive to improve and to score goals. It’s something really unique that I’ve been able to observe over the years because he’s been a player from Anderlecht, which is the same youth system where I come from and I’ve really followed his progress.
“The key thing with him is he believes he’s the best player in the world. It doesn’t matter whether he is or he isn’t, that’s the way he approaches every single training session, that’s the way he approaches every game.
“If you think you are the best you can never really be satisfied with yourself and therefore you always keep working harder and harder and that’s what he does. It’s a special player to have but there will be a lot of competition this season.”
