Man Utd fans reckon Romelu Lukaku’s first touch is getting ‘worse with every game’ after Valencia defeat
ROMELU LUKAKU has emerged as the subject of criticism from Manchester United fans after his display in the Champions League defeat to Valencia.
United’s £75million striker left supporters frustrated with his display as Jose Mourinho’s side slipped to a 2-1 loss in Spain.
But it appears scores of fans are losing patience with the way the Belgian loses possession cheaply because of his poor control.
The 25-year-old’s all round game has been brought into focus in the past as he lacks the finesse of other top level forwards in the game.
There are times when opposition defenders find him impossible to deal with when he is at the peak of his form.
But in other matches he struggles to exert his authority and some fans believe he costs United through the basic flaw in his game, failing to control the ball.
The Champions League clash with Valencia was the ideal time to produce a top performance for his side having been dropped for the clash with Arsenal earlier this month.
But just four minutes into the match, Lukaku wasted a great chance for United to make an early impact – and that left fans fuming.
