See Romelu Lukaku’s Reply To Man United Fans Who Called Him Slow & Lazy.

Belgium attacker, Romelu Lukaku has hit back at Manchester United supporters who called him slow and Lazy, while he played with the English Premier League club.

The Belgian striker spent two years at Old Trafford in a spell which saw him directly involved in 55 goals in 96 games in all competitions. Suffered unfair jibes from both Manchester United & rival fans who ridiculed him for being slow, lazy and having a poor first touch.

Lukaku has however fired back at his critics after he won the Europa League player of the 2019/2020 season. In an interview with  The Times the former United forward said;

“A year ago, when I was in England, I was ‘lazy, I didn’t run, I didn’t do this and that’
“Here, they call me the hardest worker in the room. If you look at me playing here and there, I mean, there are improvements but the [same] Rom is still there.

“If you look at me now you see a different outcome, you see the full person, you see the full potential. You see what I could have been doing in England.

“They will call me slow and I’m like, ‘slow? Me, slow? I cannot keep up with the fast pace game of Man Utd?

“There were too many little things where I thought: this is not right. If you call me slow I would not score a goal like I scored the second against Shakhtar Donetsk in the [Europa League] semi-final.

“If I was slow I would not have got the penalty like I did against Sevilla in the final. That’s two years after.

“Are you going to say me at 27 is faster than I was at 25? That’s what I’m trying to say. It’s just little things. I was like, you know what? Eff this. I’m out.”

Since Lukaku has been with Inter Milan, he’s become one of manager Antonio Conte’s most trusted players, with an impressive record after his first 14 months in Italy having featured in 53 matches in all competitions and being directly involved in 43 goals.
