Lukaku: I Am A Better Player Thanks To Mourinho

share on:

Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku has stated that his manager, Jose Mourinho , makes him a better player.

The Belgium striker just completed his move to Manchester United from Everton , for a fee of £75 million.

Lukaku scored 25 goals for Everton in the premier league last season and has already scored his first United goal.

“He knows what I can bring to the team and he’s someone who is pushing me,” he told UK newspapers.

“I push myself too but he makes me a better player. I think I learned a lot from him in the last week and I’m glad I can work with him.

“I’m happy for my goal. There is still a lot of work to do; as a team we know we need to be much better.

“But I’m glad I’m here because you really see it’s a big club and that was the challenge I wanted.”

Lukaku enjoyed a fine stay at Everton, scoring at least 10 league goals in each of his four seasons at Goodison Park.

But he is ready to fire for United, saying: “I’m very happy now.

“I have to make sure I stay focused and have the same ambition I’ve always had and work hard – that’s the key to success.”

United are next in action with a derby clash against Manchester City at the International Champions Cup on Thursday.
