Manchester United Can't Win The Premier League With Romelu Lukaku - Paul Scholes by Sportdab(m): 1:16pm On Oct 17, 2018
Manchester United Legend Paul Scholes has revealed he doubts if the club can win the Premier League with Romelu Lukaku as their lead striker.

Since his move from Everton to Manchester United in 2017, Lukaku has scored 20 goals in 44 matches for the club.

He has scored only four goals this season for United but his last was on September 15.

He’s since gone six games without scoring for his club but he did score twice for Belgium against Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League last week.

This weekend, Lukaku will face his former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with United in need of three points to keep up with the title race.

But Scholes doesn't believe Lukaku has enough quality to lead United To their first title since 2013.

“I’m just not sure you are ever going to win the league with a goal scorer like him,” he told ESPN.

“I don't think his play outside of the box is good enough.

“I’m not sure if he works hard enough but he's still a young man who has done welland scored a lot of goals.

“He's quick and strong, but Lukaku is one of many United players who look like they're short of confidence.

“I don't think he realises how good he can be, but he needs help because who else can play centre-forward at United now?"

When it was suggested Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford could play up front, Scholes added: “Maybe, but they look like wingers. And they're getting slagged off by the manager.

“We had four centre-forwards -- [Andy] Cole, Teddy [Sheringham], Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] and [Dwight] Yorke -- and when they through bad spells, which every footballer does, someone else waswaiting to come in.

“That helped their performances because they knew that if they didn't perform then they would be taken off.

“Maybe Lukaku needs that, too.”

Lukaku is the least of United problems, he has improved since joining the club esp compared to how he was initially.
Man U need wingers and major defense training.

True

First touch....bad

Can't use his body to bully defenders

If he's not scoring....He's nowhere to be found

As a Utd fan, I totally agree with scholes...I never like his style of play. Will play ten matches and score just once...



most times you see him in football is wen he is running to kick an opponent or kick the ball out of possession.


He should go with his master embarassed

Some of us knew this long ago. Lukaku is not in the class of strikers that can give a top team an edge. He is not in the league of Henry, Drogba, Aguero, Etoo, Lewandowski, Torres, Cavani and co.

I don't know what Jose saw in him.

Lukaku first touch is very poor, he needs to work on that. He also needs to improve on his passing. He still scores a lot of goals aside that. Scholes talks too much, he just knows how to criticize and don't know how to encourage players. Same thing stupid gary nevile does till he was shut up recently by eric baily and reminded how he messed up against spurs when he younger.
