What Lukaku must live with as Manchester United striker – Ryan Giggs

Former Manchester United forward, Ryan Giggs has warned Romelu Lukaku that he will have to deal with a whole new level of scrutiny at the club.

The Lukaku joined Manchester United from Everton for £75 million last Monday on a five-year deal.

The Belgian has already come under criticism after failing to score in the 5-2 friendly win over the LA Galaxy on Saturday, being his debut.

Giggs told Press Association Sport, “He’s going to be scrutinised like he’s never been scrutinised before — but if he comes through that, I don’t see why he won’t score a lot of goals for United.

“But he has to handle the whole thing of being centre-forward at Manchester United, the one who makes the difference.

“We’ve seen over the years Ruud van Nistelrooy, Eric Cantona, Mark Hughes, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Robin van Persie. They all handled it because they all had to, and the only way to do that is to score goals
“I don’t think it should be just Lukaku, the goals need to come from all over the pitch.

“Juan Mata usually gets to double figures and it’s up to the likes of Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to get into double figures, because Lukaku will definitely score goals.

“Last year it was left to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but it needs a team effort to get more goals.

“Lukaku has been in the Premier League for last few years and regularly scored 20-plus, so I can see him scoring goals. But he’s going to witness little things, like we’ve seen already — like not scoring on his debut.

“You don’t get as much space at United, teams defend in numbers, especially at Old Trafford. But you are in a team that is constantly attacking so he’ll get more chances than he did at West Brom and Everton.”
