Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has been criticised once again, but this time, it’s not because of his performance, but because he didn’t celebrate enough after scoring the winning goal.
The Belgian striker has come under some heavy criticism of late after several underwhelming performances but he clinched the winner against West Brom in a fiercely fought out battle.
The 24-year-old was playing against his old club West Brom when he was on loan, and scored the opening goal after 27 minutes to put United in front. The Belgian leaped in the air to meet a superb cross from Marcus Rashford and skillfully guided the ball into the corner of the net.
But that wasn’t enough for pundits Gary Neville and Owen Hargreaves it seems.
The striker failed to celebrate for the second time in a week after scoring a goal. Some fans put it down to the heavy criticism he’s received of late and others think it was merely because he was playing his old team.
Neville said on Sky Sports: ‘He needs to celebrate, he absolutely does.
‘Celebrate with those fans behind the goal, endear yourself to them.’
And Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp also weighed in; “When he gets the right delivery he’s unstoppable. I don’t get the non-celebration, whether he’s unhappy? It’s irrelevant. ‘He’s paid big money to score for Manchester United. I’ll never get it.”
Lukaku scored his tenth Premier League goal for United and has made four assists.
