Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has hailed the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim boss, claiming that a one-to-one meeting with him has helped him rediscover his goal- scoring touch.
The Belgian struggled for goals in the final months of Jose Mourinho’s reign but has now rediscovered his form, netting three goals in his last three games, which is his best run in a United shirt since March.
Lukaku has attributed his run of form to having a discussion with Solskjaer who has enjoyed a fine start as interim manager at Old Trafford.
“He [Solskjaer] knows the type of striker that I am and I think from the first day when I came back in, he did a total analysis of my game and I was really surprised. He helped me a lot and I am looking forward to keeping on working with him. I just want to work and help the team in every way that I can and right now everything is going well, not only for me but for the rest of the team as well and I am delighted,” Lukaku said as quoted by ESPN.
The 25-year-old has netted 36 goals in 76 games since moving to United from Everton in 2017 and will need to be on top of his game if the club are to secure Champions League qualification for next season.
