Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has said that he is thriving under the tutelage of new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Belgian forward has not been able to be in his best form since the start of the season. However, he seems to be coming back in form as he scored the second goal in the FA Cup contest between Manchester United and Reading, which the Red Devils won by 2-0, with Juan Mata scoring the first from the spot.
Speaking to the media after the win, Lukaku said, “I know he was ice-cold when he was in front of the goal and that’s something I like.”
He added, “He talks to me all the time – all the time – and I like that. And he plays in a way that I like to play, and also the rest of the team.”
Speaking about how Solskjaer has influenced him, the Belgian striker said, “A lot. Movement-wise, and stuff like that. But obviously he knows the type of striker I am and I think from the first day when I came back in, he did a total analysis of my game. I was really surprised. He helped me a lot and I am looking forward to keeping on working with him.”
