Inter’s Romelu Lukaku Hits Out At Man Utd: “Myself, Pogba & Sanchez Were Always To Blame”

Romelu Lukaku believes he was unfairly treated by Manchester United during his time with the Reds.

Inter’s new striker sat down for a lengthy interview with the LightHearted podcast at the start of June, but it was only released earlier this week.

Lukaku appeared to suggest United did not offer him enough protection whenever it came to criticism from the media.

“They always had to find someone to give the blame to,” the Belgian said.

“It was always Pogba’s fault, Alexis Sanchez’s fault or my fault. It was always us three, every time.

“A lot of people didn’t think I should have been part of that team, and as far as I’m concerned we can go our separate ways if that’s how things are.

“What makes me laugh is that while things were going badly at United, I was happy while playing for Belgium. Is it my fault if there’s something wrong at the club?”

Lukaku insisted he was not the only player at United who under-performed following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment last December.

“They needed to find a scapegoat, and if they want to give me the blame then they can f*ck themselves,” he added.

“United have the potential to do great things but it’s not only a question of how much talent you have in your squad. You need to build a team.”

On his relationship with Jose Mourinho, Lukaku said: “We often had run-ins but I adore him as a man. I think he adored me as well but we had a lot of arguments.”
