A year ago, they call me slow - Romelu Lukalu

A year ago, they call me slow - Romelu Lukalu

Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukalu has hit back at those who criticized and called him lazy when he was at Manchester United.

Romelu Lukaku played two seasons at Manchester United and his debut season was a success as the helped Manchester United reached the FA Cup final and also finish second in the Premier League.

However, his second season wasn't the best as many questioned his form and his ability to lead the United line. Lukaku was later sold to Inter Milan after new coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he will be working with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to lead the United attack.

Since joining Inter Milan, Lukaku has rediscovered his form as has been a big success for the Serie A side. Speaking with The Times, Lukaku revealed how he was called slow at Manchester United despite his brilliant form and how he helped them in the Europa League.

"A year ago, when I was in England, I was 'lazy, I didn't run, I didn't do this and that'," Lukaku said

"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."
