Jose Mourinho has hailed the early impact made by Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United ahead of the striker’s reunion with his former Everton teammates this weekend.
Romelu Lukaku has already hit six goals in six appearances for his new side since joining in a £75m transfer from the Toffees during the summer.
Lukaku arrived at United following prolific spells with Anderlecht, West Bromwich Albion and Everton, which Mourinho believes was always going to stand him in good stead for the next step in his career at Old Trafford.
“Especially for a striker it’s important how many goals you score but I don’t put any pressure on a player over that. He is playing well, there is a good relationship between the way our striker and the way the team plays,” he told reporters.
“I think he comes [to United] in the right moment, [he is] a good age, a good number of years of experience in different clubs in the Premier League and clearly a player adapted to the Premier League with good friends already in this dressing room.
“[He has made] an easy interaction into our group and the way the team tries to play has a good relationship with his qualities as a player, he came at the right moment in his career.”
