Romelu Lukaku ready to create history at Man Utd

Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku sets up a play

Romelu Lukaku is ready to make history at Manchester United, but doesn't want to be compared to any other strikers. The Belgium forward simply said: "I am Romelu Lukaku."


As ever when a player signs for a big fee, expectations are high and this is especially the case after Lukaku arrived at Old Trafford for £75m. He now has big boots to fill, taking the No.9 shirt from Zlatan Ibrahimovic as he is set to lead the line for Jose Mourinho's men.

Lukaku is determined to stay grounded though and doesn't want to be compared to other world-class strikers. He wants to have huge success at the club, but doesn't want to be performing in anybody else's shadow.

Speaking about what he can achieve for the Red Devils, the striker said: "I can't say I'm the complete package. There is a lot of work to be done and I'm delighted that there is as it means I can become even better than I am.

"Drogba is more of a hold-up player, a target man. I prefer to have ball to feet and run in behind.

"I'm Romelu Lukaku, I want to create my own history."

Mourinho was keen to stop any comparisions to Drogba too. The Man Utd boss has managed both of them before and was adamant they are two very different players.

He said: "I don't compare, I don't compare at all. One has his history and one is still in the beginning of his history."

Lukaku has certainly started life in a Man Utd shirt well with two pre-season goals and he'll look to continue this as he adds to his Premier League tally in the 2017. 2018 campaign.
