I know how to cherish when I lose, but it's too late. Manchester United looked for guns to lock on Ighalo and Cavani, but they once had an enviable good knife in their hands.
In the national team competition week, Lukaku scored consecutive goals (1 against England and 2 against Iceland). The total number of personal Belgium goals reached 55, and the number of games used was 87 games.
What kind of goal rate is this? We can compare it horizontally.
Look at the club report card again.
This season, Lukaku has scored 3 goals in Serie A. Manchester United's Martial, Rashford and Greenwood have scored 3 goals in all competitions.
After joining Inter Milan, Lukaku has contributed 37 goals, including 34 in his debut season.
So far in his career, Lukaku has scored 279 goals for the club and the national team, and he is only 27 years old.
Lukaku is tall and strong, running very fast, able to take the kick and head the ball. Such a full-featured center is rare in today's football. The only flaw may be that the ball feels a little worse, and he does not often miss some chance balls, but his impact and destructive power are enough to make up for this flaw.
The formation of Little Monster is highly adaptable. In Inter Milan, Lukaku partnered with Lautaro in the 352 double forward, and worked well; in Belgium's 433, he played as a single center forward and could play a pivotal role.
can play alone, can be paired, even if you pull him to the wing to play as a winger (Mourinho occasionally did it). In whose eyes such a center is not a treasure?
There are people who really don't care about small monsters. To Lukaku and Solskjaer, they don't need it. That was after the reversal of Paris, Little Warcraft's chance to play at Manchester United suddenly declined. On the attack line, Martial, Rashford, Greenwood, and even Lin Huang Petty (Lingard, Pereira) have more chances to play than Lukaku.
Judging from all the information that has been revealed so far, it is Solskjaer’s that the pot is not all, Lukaku wants to go, and the spirit of playing at Manchester United is not high. But what needs to be asked is, what caused this situation? Is Solskjaer responsible? Certainly, he does not value Lukaku that much. This is certain, otherwise he will not be a little slack in training (overweight), and one or two games will be unsatisfactory, so he decided to abandon him and even plan to clean him. . Compare Pogba's public yelling to leave, and the state of the game fluctuates greatly, but the baby face is still guarded. This is called the difference between relatives, and it is impossible for Lukaku himself to feel it.
Lukaku wants to go, but Solskjaer doesn’t use it. The two are mutually cause and effect. To put it another way, Suo Shuai's importance to the Little Monster is not so strong that you can't support it. Therefore, if Manchester United lost such a good center, is there any place to reflect on it? Can't say no.
It was Martial, Rashford and Greenwood who sold Lukaku to Manchester United. Their performances were so hot late last season that people forgot about Little Warcraft, but when there are ups and downs, people will inevitably think of what Manchester United threw away. This good gun.
Compare the data. Since Lukaku left Manchester United in August 2019, what are the transcripts of these four attackers?
Lukaku scored 37 goals in 54 games for Inter Milan, assisted 6 times, 119.8 minutes per goal, the team's winning rate was 61%
Rashford has 24 goals in 49 Manchester United games, 8 assists, 157.2 minutes per goal, the team's winning percentage is 53%
Martial 23 goals in 51 games, 9 assists, 163.9 minutes per goal, team winning rate 57%
Greenwood has 18 goals in 53 games, 4 assists, 155.5 minutes per goal, 49% win rate
In contrast, Lukaku has the highest number of goals, scoring rate and team win rate. Of course, Inter Milan and Manchester United have different play styles, different leagues, and different platforms. This comparison is just a reference, but one thing is for sure. If used properly, Lukaku could have got dazzling data at Manchester United. To know,
The little monster is not working well, mainly depends on whether you can use it.
After selling Lukaku, Manchester United never bought a center replacement of the same level. The Red Devils’ abacus was that Martial picked up the main beam and Rashford was more stable. When Greenwood came up again, he naturally filled the gap. But slowly they found out, no! The third element of the striker is not yet mature, and someone has to find someone in this position. So, Ighalo came to work part-time, and then came to Cavani with a 200,000 weekly salary, in order to deal with the past year first...Look at the development of Lukaku after leaving Manchester United. Do the Red Devils fans regret it? Knowing that, why did you have half the patience and warmth for Pogba in the first place? How could Lukaku, a good knife, slip from Manchester United so easily?
