Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho was pleased to have watched Romelu Lukaku end his goalless streak for the Red Devils on Saturday. The Belgium international netted the final goal in a 4-1 rout of Newcastle United, and thereby ended a lean run which started in October. Following the game, Mourinho was delighted to see Lukaku back in the goals, he said: “He is a striker and strikers like to score goals. It is not a problem for me if he works like he always does and he doesn’t score goals but for their self-esteem, their confidence, strikers like to
Belgium footballer Romelu Lukaku reportedly raged at his Manchester United teammates following last weekend’s 1-0 Premier League defeat at the hands of Chelsea. The 24-year-old failed to score for the Red Devils for a seventh game on the trot with little service from the players behind them. Lukaku ended the match without a single touch in the Chelsea box, and he made his feelings clear in the dressing room following the game. The defeat was only United’s second of the Premier League campaign after Morata popped up with a brilliant header to secure three points for Antonio Conte’s men.
Former Manchester United striker has urged Jose Mourinho to consider moves for the likes of Raphael Varane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Special One made valuable business during the summer transfer window as he recruited the likes of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic to his ranks. The move has already paid rich dividends with the likes of Lukaku and Matic already proving excellent buys for the Mancunian giants. In a report covered by The Sun, Saha – who scored 42 goals for the Red Devils, revealed two players Mourinho should think about signing in the future, he said: “I
Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic will galvanise the Red Devils once he recovers from his long-term knee injury. The big Swede notched 28 goals in 46 appearances for United last season before he sustained a gruelling injury in the Europa League quarter-final clash against Anderlecht. Manchester United opted to release the 35-year-old at the expiry of his contract in early June, but the effort shown in his rehabilitation convinced the club into re-signing him on a one-year deal last month. In a report covered by FourFourTwo, Saha admitted that Ibrahimovic is an immense player for the
Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has had a very busy schedule – that even resulted in a split from his wife – since retiring from active football. For example in one day, he reportedly spoke to an eSportsmasterclass, had an interview about his current affairs, he prepared for a dinner with some investors and other prospective contributors in his business, having toured Asia two weeks earlier to expand the same business. Most footballers choose to go into punditry these days, work on their coaching badges or become licensed agents. Some do charity work while others turn away completely from
Hugo Lloris reckons that the current situation of Moussa Sissoko is not helping the France team management in terms of its planning for FIFA World Cup which is now less than a year away.

A couple of foreign clubs are believed to be interested in loan deals
To find a French striker who failed to establish himself in the Premier League in recent times demands going back to the days of Louis Saha – who managed to make a name for himself in one put of 6 EPL teams he played for, that being Fulham. Just like Italians are known for their defensive ingenuity and Spain are widely recognized as the nation that redefined how midfielders control the game at the middle of the park, the striking capital of the world do not seem to belong to any other nation than France. From the early days of
