Man Utd fan creates interesting video of Romelu Lukaku's hold-up play since joining

Manchester United v Valencia - UEFA Champions League Group H

Romelu Lukaku's confidence is at an all-time low at Manchester United.

His goal drought for the Red Devils stretched to eight games during Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League.

And it has to be said that the Belgian was absolutely terrible.

Lukaku's touch completely failed him on a number of occasions and he's since come under heavy fire from some United legends.

Lee Sharpe reckons Lukaku's touch is the worst he's ever seen from a striker, while Paul Scholes believes the 25-year-old isn't good enough to lead United to Premier League glory.

"I've never seen a centre forward with such a bad touch," said Sharpe of Lukaku. "If your centre forward can't hold the ball up, it makes it a very hard game.

"He's saying he's played a lot of football at the World Cup and since and that he's feeling it. I think the best thing would be to give him a rest. Send him off on holiday for a couple of weeks."

And Scholes said: "I'm just not sure you are ever going to win the league with a goalscorer like Lukaku. I don't think his play outside of the box is good enough.

"I'm not sure if he works hard enough, but he's still a young man who has done well and scored a lot of goals.

"He's quick and strong, but Lukaku is one of many United players who look like they're short of confidence."

A compilation video emerged earlier this week highlighting some of Lukaku's embarrassing moments this season, like bad touches, poor passes and awful finishing.

However, one United fan thinks the striker deserves more credit under Jose Mourinho and has created a video showing he can hold up the ball and can link up play.

It's worth noting that a lot of the footage is from last season, but clearly Lukaku is capable of holding up the ball - he's just going through a bad spell at the moment.

Some United fans think the Belgium international has become too muscular and needs to lose a bit of weight, but confidence is everything in football and a few goals could be all that's needed.
