Default Re: Romelu Lukaku

'I knew my time at Manchester United was over when I was put on the wing': Romelu Lukaku wanted to leave Old Trafford after being played out of position by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

* Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deployed Romelu Lukaku on more than one occasion
* Lukaku did not like being shunted to the wing so was keen on leaving the club
* The Belgium international is scoring goals for fun at Inter after his 73m move


Romelu Lukaku has revealed he knew his Manchester United career was over when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to move him from his usual No 9 position to the wing.

Solskjaer chose to play Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford as his main striker during periods of last season as Lukaku fell out of favour under the Manchester United boss.

Lukaku ended up joining Inter Milan in the summer for 73million and the Belgian has revealed when he knew his time was up at Old Trafford.


Romelu Lukaku wanted to leave Manchester United after being played on the wing. Solskjaer played Lukaku out-wide as he put his faith in Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford

The 26-year-old, speaking to Corriere dello Sport, said of his United exit: 'Once I learned that [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer planned to put me on the wing, then I knew my time at Manchester United was over.

'I've dreamed of Inter for some time. I loved Ronaldo and Adriano, but it was Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] that taught me everything, especially in our talks on the team bus. I believe he will return to Serie A.

'I don't mind being the most expensive player in Inter's history, nor replacing [Mauro] Icardi, who gave a lot here in Milan. When I arrived, Mauro was very nice and kind to me. I wish him all the best at Paris Saint-Germain and hope he wins there. We are two different forwards.'

Lukaku is enjoying playing under Antonio Conte and believes the fiery Italian is of a similar calibre to former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

He added: 'Conte is unique. We know what to do in every situation. He and [Jose] Mourinho are the two best coaches of my career.'

Lukaku has started his Serie A career off in fine form with the striker scoring nine goals in his first 12 league games in Italy.
