Romelu Lukaku Man United news

Ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge of Man United last year, the fans have been able to witness a completely different side.

The original Man United to be exact.

The Red Devils have gone back to playing attacking football which has reaped positive results.

United are yet to lose a game ever since Solskjaer took charge of the club and almost every player has upped their game.




But according to football pundit Jamie Redknapp, there is one player who has failed to lift his game since the arrival of the Norwegian.

“One player that perhaps hasn’t had that little bit of luck is Romelu Lukaku,” Redknapp said.

“It will come with Lukaku but he’s the one that hasn’t really perhaps responded to Ole because he’s not been given a chance.




“I think he was injured when he [Solskjaer] first came. Everyone else has gone flying.




“You can see that it may take time or it might not happen for him at all.

“It might not because the pace that Man United play with at the moment would enable people like [Marcus] Rashford and [Jesse] Lingard.

“They look better in the team than he does.




“It looks like he’s really lacking confidence.”




The caretaker boss has obviously preferred to use Marcus Rashford as his striker instead of Romelu Lukaku and this swift has had a positive impact.

Rashford has been in top form ever since Solskajer took charge of the club which means that Romelu Lukaku has now fallen down the pecking order.

Romelu Lukaku is now being used sparingly either as a substitute or during the so-called less important games.




If the Belgian international cannot up his game then surely he will remain the second choice man for the manager for the whole of the remainder of the season.
