Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to get back against Romelu Lukaku after the Belgian’s latest comments about his time at the Old Trafford.
Romelu Lukaku joined Inter Milan on the transfer deadline day in a deal worth £73m after failing to feature in the pre-season for the Reds.
However, during a podcast, Romelu Lukaku decided to open up a can of worms about his time at Manchester United.
You can read the excerpts here:
“They have got to find somebody to blame. I put my hand up, like, this year I don’t think I was the only one playing bad. A lot of people were playing bad but they had to find the culprit.”
“If they want to put the blame on me, you know what, f*ck it, do what you gotta do.”
“A lot of people don’t think I should be part of that system. That’s my feeling from the conversations that I have. I just know.”
“For me, the thing that makes me laugh a lot is: how the hell is sh*t going bad in my team, but when I play in my national team, it’s good? And I’m happy.”
Lukaku also blamed the club as a whole for failing to make him feel wanted and protected:
“I think a lot of stuff has been said where I didn’t feel protected.”
“A lot of rumors, “Rom is going to go there, they don’t want Rom” and nobody came out and shot it down.”
“It was for a good three, four weeks. I’m waiting for someone to come out and shut it down. It didn’t happen. I had my conversation, told them it was better to go our separate ways. I just wanted you to say, ‘Rom is going to fight for his place’, but it never happened for four, five months.”
“It was all, ‘He’s got to go, he doesn’t deserve to be there’. Well, okay, then I want to go now. There is fighting for your position, but also being somewhere that people want you to be.”
“If you’re happy, you find a way, it doesn’t matter if you’re on the bench or starting. But nobody told me that was the situation, so I thought for two, three weeks to analyse, see all this sh*t coming out in the media. Who leaks it? Not me. Not my agent. I see it on my phone come out of nowhere.”
“I told them, “It’s not good for me to be at a place where I’m not wanted”
Manchester United fans, of course, weren’t happy about this latest turn of events as they took to the Twitter to remind him of a thing or two:
Keep our name out of your mouth you fraud. Nothing but a Belgian Jozy Altidore.

People really didnt criticize Lukaku that much compared to everyone else in our squad. He just wants to play the victim. Ask Ashley Young about abuse from fans

That's how it works at big clubs fam… It wont be easier at madrid or barca…. This guy really doesn't have the mentality to play for a club that's always in the spotlight

God I hate this man so much. He's such a baby. Ashley Young gets even more hate than you, yet he takes it like a man and does his job. Doesn't matter if he does it well or not. Glad you're out of my club.

Well, it wasn’t a happy ending, was it? Now, hopefully, we all move on from this s**tstorm and focus on the season ahead.
