Lukaku on how Ibrahimovic helped him

22 Mar 2019, 16:15

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed he is still benefiting from the wisdom that Zlatan Ibrahimovic shared with him before leaving the Premier League side. 

The Belgian has revealed how a 50/50 challenge with the Swede in training taught him everything he needed to know about Ibra. Ibrahimovic left United a year ago and joined Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy after a frustrating period of injury that blighted his second season with the Red Devils. 

“Everything I learned from Zlatan was great, from his stories that he told me when he was at Inter, AC Milan, Barcelona, and even Ajax, to being on the field working with him, seeing how competitive he was,” Lukaku told club's official website.

“I remember one training session. Because we were both strikers, we were never on the same team and, at one point, there was a 50/50 challenge. He went full-on against me! “That is when I knew this guy wants to compete and this guy wants to fight for his spot. That is why he changed me. It was an eye-opener. The guy had to fight to be in the position he is in.”

“So, I learned just to focus, work hard and enjoy it as well. Because he is a guy who you can have a lot of fun with as well and having his personality in the dressing room was good.”
