Ruud Van Nistelrooy Pays Tribute To Romelu Lukaku

Former Manchester United forward Ruud van Nistelrooy has backed Romelu Lukaku to continue his fine run of form for the club

Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Old Trafford from Everton during the summer, has scored six times in six appearances for Man United at the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

“Lukaku has made a good start at dealing with the pressure as a striker at United. There is always a price ticket around your neck, ­especially in the early matches. If you don’t score, people say, ‘Hey, he’s not scoring’. But Romelu is scoring goals and I’m certain that will continue,” Van Nistelrooy told reporters.

“Like me, I think he is a pure No.9, playing through the ­middle. You wouldn’t put me on the wing. The same with him. I was the same type of player, making runs ­behind, dangerous in the box and holding the ball up.

“He has made a real difference to United. He has scored goals from the off and has the right boss, in Jose ­Mourinho, to guide him. There will be ­difficult phases to come. But Mourinho has been there and done it and will know how to guide him through any rough patches.”
