The Manchester United player Romelu Lukaku is 'regularly berating' for his poor service

Romelu Lukaku hasn’t wasted any time in showing everyone he’s well worth the £75 million Jose Mourinho spent on him this summer.

An incredible 11 goals in his first 10 matches for the club has seen him hit the ground running as he looks to establish himself as a United great.

Of course, there is still a very long way to go before the Belgian striker can consider himself as a club icon but he’s made the best possible start.

Not only do you need the ability to succeed at the most successful club in English football but you need the mentality.

And Lukaku appears to have just that.

Not only has he claimed the number nine shirt, he also insisted that he was the club’s number one penalty taker - although he didn’t help himself by missing from the spot against Leicester early in the season.

And his arrogant and controversial celebrations against Everton - where he put his finger to his lips and cupped his ear - is the winning mentality that will see him thrive at the Theatre of Dreams.


But there’s something else Lukaku is doing that suggests he has the right attitude - by giving his teammates a hard time for their poor service.

In fact, it’s one teammate in particular.

In a report by the Manchester Evening News, Lukaku is always moaning a poor Daley Blind for his quality of passes to him.


Who Lukaku is 'regularly berating'

"Rooney's departure, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic's ongoing rehabilitation, has allowed a number of United's younger players to step up and find their voice despite Michael Carrick being his successor as skipper," the report said.

"Romelu Lukaku, for example, has made an instant impact in that regard - regularly berating Daley Blind for his service - and boldly taking up penalty duties against Leicester."

Poor old, Blind.

While you might feel sorry for the Dutchman, you have to respect Lukaku’s demands.

The Belgian will want to continue this incredible goalscoring streak and Blind will no doubt ensure the crosses he’s delivering to his teammate can’t be complained about in the future.
