Lukaku slams Man Utd teammates after Sevilla defeat

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has slammed his teammate following their Champions League defeat to Sevilla.

Knowing they needed to score, United had a decent opening five minutes, but quickly regressed into a passive performance, which only was sparked into life when substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored a quick fire brace.

Speaking after the game, Romelu Lukaku, who scored a late consolation goal, had some scathing words about some of his team mates:

“Something was wrong with some players, some players were hiding,” Lukaku told BT Sport.

“I think we started the game well, but then we let them get a bit of control in the game. We had a few half-chances but we didn’t score.

“Then they scored the first goal and from that moment on we tried to chase the game. Then they scored the second one which was a big blow. At the end we kept pushing, but it was not enough.

“We should have done much better today because with the quality that we have in the team, I think we should have gone through. But we didn’t deserve it because we weren’t good enough.

“We should have scored earlier, I think maybe in the first half with the half-chances that we created. The last pass today was not good enough – we always get in the right position but the last pass to each other was not good enough and I think that’s what killed us today.

“In the dressing room some people are disappointed with the result because we expected better from ourselves.”
