“A lot can be said positively about Ibrahimovic, but I think the same things can be said about Romelu,” de Bruyne things, “he does amazing things on the pitch and scores goals.”
The midfielder added of Lukaku that “As long as he keeps playing he’ll keep scoring goals, we’ll do everything to provide service to him and then he’ll score goals.”
