The Belgian striker bid farewell to the Red Devils in the summer of 2019, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is making procedure with those at his disposal.
Romelu Lukaku sees Manchester United heading in”the right direction”, together with the Inter striker stating the Red Devils will”get there” under the advice of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Belgium global was one of those to head for the exits at Old Trafford in the summer of 2019.
His death left an attacking emptiness for Solskjaer to fill, despite concerns having been asked of his worth and contribution to the cause.
Finding another reliable option from the No.9 role hasn’t been simple , with United having used Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and January signing Odion Ighalo as a focus in the last third.
There also have been problems to address elsewhere on the field, with defensive leaks having sprung and Paul Pogba compelled to devote much of the effort stuck on the sidelines through injury.
Progress has been made, however, with Bruno Fernandes proving to be a wise improvement, and Lukaku expects United to reach their ultimate goals in time.
He advised an Instagram Q&A session when quizzed on his former team: “They’re going the proper direction.
“It is a process, but they’ll get there.”
Some of those he listened for moments which is expected to lead the charge for United.
Academy graduate Rashford has an essential part to play, despite now being stuck on the sidelines through injury.
The 22-year-old has posted a career-best yield of 19 goals this year, having changed between fundamental and broad attacking roles, and Lukaku isn’t surprised to find that the England international flourishing.
He said of Rashford: “Not surprised about what he’s doing. He [has] been working hard.”
Lukaku chose to walk away from the competition with Rashford and Co so as to take on a new challenge in Italy with Serie A name hopefuls Inter.
He’s impressed at San Siro, registering 23 goals in his debut effort, and seems to be enjoying his football again after enduring a frustrating end to his time in England.
Lukaku told the New York Times in December of his spell with United: “It was always,’Yes, but…’ right from the beginning.
“I scored against Real Madrid at the European Super Cup but missed a chance. It was:’But he missed that one’
“I scored against West Ham in my first Premier League match:’Yes, but…’ From then on, I began to wonder how it was going to go.”
Lukaku discovered the goal 42 times for United in 96 looks, and is a part of the Premier League 100-goal club, but was not really embraced by a demanding fan base.
