Manager: Here Is How Lukaku Can Deal With His Goal Drought


Romelu Lukaku yet again failed to find the back of the net when his side played Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

And Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez has stepped in to give the striker some advice to deal with his goal drought at Old Trafford.

Man United paid something hefty to Everton to get Lukaku’s signature during the summer transfer window, and the Belgian forward quickly settled to life at his new side by beating some early records set by some of United’s legends like Ruud van Nistelrooy and Eric Cantona.

However, as things stands now, the player has not scored a goal for Man United in their last seven games.

This has invited some criticism from some of the club’s fans, prompting manager Jose Mourinho to publicly defend his striker.

Romelu was however called up for his country’s upcoming friendly games with Mexico and Japan, and the national side boss Roberto Martinez has advised him to continue believing in himself.

Speaking recently about the player, Martinez, who worked together with Romelu for some years back then at Everton, said he has a big advantage with the player because he knew Lukaku ‘inside out’.

He also told the player to ‘carry on being himself’ at Old Trafford, and keep on ‘seeing himself in that manner when he scores and when he doesn’t’.

Romelu has scored on his three previous game’s for Belgium and will hope to break his drought when his country clashes with Mexico on Friday before playing Japan next Tuesday.
