Mourinho impressed with Lukaku

The Red Devils won 5-2 over LA Galaxy as Lukaku made his United debut.

Jose Mourinho said he was impressed with what he saw during the LA Galaxy game. Romelu Lukaku made his first appearance for the Red Devils after his big-money move from Everton earlier this month. The Portuguese manager thinks the Belgium striker brings a lot to his team but warned the fans not to make comparisons between Wayne Rooney and Romelu Lukaku.

“To compare Rooney and Lukaku is incomparable and Rooney for us was not a striker. Lukaku is more a target man with his back to the opponents,” the Portuguese explained.

“It’s a point of attack for everyone who has the ball in defensive lines, he’s really fast and a good thing for me today is he showed he’s a team player and was not worried about himself, he was worried about the improvement of the team.”
