Romelu Lukaku has said that he is yet to really click at Manchester United, but is confident that when he finally gets an understanding with his teammates, that the goals will flow.
Lukaku scored 27 goals in 51 appearances in his debut season for Manchester United last season, but has only managed to find the net four times this season in 12 outings, and hasn’t scored in his last seven.
However, while the goals have seemingly dried up at club level, they have been certainly flowing on the international stage, extending his goalscoring record to 45 goals in 79 appearances for Belgium during the recent international break with a brace against Switzerland
When asked why he finds it easier to score for his national team, Lukaku said that it was simply down to the fact that he is more familiar with his international teammates than he is with those at club level.
“I don’t know. With Belgium I’ve been playing for 10 years, since I was 16. Players know me much more,” the Belgian told a press conference ahead of United’s Champions League clash with Juventus.
“Here I still think my teamwork between myself and my team-mates can improve and be much better. It’s something that we’re working.
“The players need to know me and know my movement. When that starts clicking I think the results I have with Belgium will also come here.”
