Solskjaer: Lukaku just ‘loves’ scoring goals

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Romelu Lukaku after the forward’s return to form for Manchester United.

The Belgian scored twice in Saturday’s 3-2 win over Southampton to take his league tally to 12 for the season, making it four goals in two games following another brace in the midweek win at Crystal Palace.

The 25-year-old has been much maligned at times this season, and has had to be patient for his opportunity having lost his place in the team to Marcus Rashford, but Solskjaer was full of praise for the forward who he says ‘loves’ scoring goals.

”He [Lukaku] is a good finisher and he loves scoring goals,” Solskjaer told his post-match press conference.

”Strikers who love scoring goals, you can’t beat it.

”You see the way he celebrated, and we see it every day in training, he practices all the time and that’s why he scores goals.”

United’s next fixture is a trip to face French champions Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League last-16 second-leg. Solskjaer’s team face a difficult task as they look to overturn a 2-0 first-leg deficit.
