Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku, has come under intense backlash following the injury he picked up while in action for the Red Devils during their domestic league clash with Southampton at stadium this evening.
The Big Belgian who ended his run of 12 games without finding the back of the net for Manchester United help them come from two down to draw at Southampton after halving their deficit following a Marcus Raahford’s assist.
He then left the field of play in the 86th minute after taking a heavy touch then followed up with a run that resulted in him twisting his ankle.
Football fans have to this end been calling out the powerful Belgian on social media with most of them faulty his bad first touch as the reason for his injury.
What fans are saying:
Can someone give LUKAKU some first touch training?!

Still undecided whether Romelu Lukaku has stagnated because of his own limitations or Jose Mourinho. Or a combination of the two #MUFC
