Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho claimed to be happy with the success of Romelu Lukaku scoring in the match against Fulham. Mourinho called the striker’s performance significant increase lately.
This season can be said to be a tough season for a Lukaku. In recent months he has often harvested criticism after a goal drought for almost the past three months.
But Lukaku himself began to break down last week when he scored against Southampton. He continued the positive trend when he scored against Fulham in the Week 16 match of the Premier League last night.
Mourinho himself was pleased to see a positive trend in Lukaku. “The goal was very good for him,” Mourinho said to MUTV.
Mourinho admitted that he was very happy Lukaku began to routinely score goals for Manchester United.
He considered the player had started playing better for his team lately.
“I think the Romelu game has really grown rapidly compared to previous matches.”
In his praise, Mourinho admitted that scoring was very important for Lukaku’s confidence.
But he insisted that he was satisfied with the overall aspects of the Belgian national team striker’s game throughout the match.
“I am happy with the development not because he scored just a goal, but he also did pressing and struggling for the team. We really played as a good unit and we did not give Fulham a chance at all in the first round. he said.
