Lukaku shrugs off Scholes criticism

Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku insists he pays no attention to criticism of his form after his contribution to the side was questioned by the club’s former midfielder Paul Scholes.

Lukuku has been a target for critics this season having struggled to replicate last seasons form, the 25-year-old currently enduring an 11-game goal drought at club level.

Speaking on criticism from Scholes in particular, Lukaku said that he doesn’t care about what he says.

“I really don’t respond to him,” Lukaku told Bleacher Report Football.

“You know, when I see him before the TV he still shakes my hand and then do like everything is normal, so you know.

“Guys who are pundits these days, I mean, they get paid to say stuff.

“But when you see them face-to-face you don’t see all that. So, I really don’t care.”

After scoring 26 goals in his debut season at the club, the Belgian has struggled for form so far this year and has also seen his physique questioned in the media. He has scored just four goals in 15 appearances for United this season.
