Romelu Lukaku’s Needs to Improve, Legend Suggests Player to Bring this to his Game

Arsenal legend-turned-pundit Thierry Henry has found a fault with Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku despite his sublime start to the season with Manchester United. The 24-year-old found the net in the 4-0 Premier League triumph over Swansea City on Saturday and this has taken his tally to four goals in just three competitive appearances for the Red Devils.

Despite his impressive start, Henry believes that Lukaku still has room for progress after having picked up his movement versus the Swans, he told Sky Sports: “That’s [movement] something he needs to bring to his game. We all know what he can do. If you want to take it to another level at Man Utd – four goals in three official games is remarkable – it is about getting better. He will work on it, he’s with special players and he’s with [Jose] Mourinho. Mourinho will help him to develop that side of the game. We all know he has the one thing that’s most important, when you feed him in the box, he will score.”

Thierry has worked in close quarters with Lukaku after being offered the assistant role with Belgium, and the former Gunner believes that the striker will improve on the work-rate as he goes along with his United career.

Lukaku notched 25 goals during his previous Premier League campaign with Everton, and he will look to better his scoring this term with three goals already in just two outings. Manchester United take on Leicester City at Old Trafford in their next league fixture, and Lukaku will relish his chance of getting on the scoresheet after having previously netted five times in seven games versus the Foxes.
