Against LA Galaxy a couple of days ago he played for 45 minutes but didn’t combine his debut at Manchester United with a goal, in their resounding 5-2 victory.
In the Red Devils’ second friendly game on US soil, Romelu Lukaku did what he says he was signed for, score, and he had every reason to be satisfied after their 2-1 win.
I’m here to score goals and be a focal point for the team. At Manchester United we play to win. That’s my first mentality when I get onto the pitch. Then everything else comes with it
the Belgium international told MUTV, having scored his team’s winning goal, after Henrikh Mkhitaryan had equalized for Man United, following Real Salt Lake’s lead, early in the game.
I feel really well. Pre-season has been going really well for us. We’ve been working really well to prepare for the season ahead. The competition is there. Everyone is working hard to have a place in the team
Lukaku also said, pleased with how his first days at United have gone.
This is what the manager wants, to play attractive football. Hopefully we will be prepared and ready to do the job
the former Everton striker added, looking already forward to United’s next friendly game.
