Thierry Henry: What I Think Of Romelu Lukaku
Arsenal legend Thierry has revealed what he thinks of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, who is the club's second most expensive signing in history.
The ex-FC Barcelona attacker has admitted that although he is looking forward to seeing the Belgian at the Red Devils this season, he believes the player will have to prove he can deliver for a bigger team on a bigger stage.
"The only question is how long it takes him to adapt," Henry told Sky Sports.
"He's not going to be facing the same type of opposition at the weekends.
"He is going to have to develop a part of his game that maybe people have questioned in the past. Can he play in the final third when the opposition sit deep?
"It will be a change for him, but I wasn't the same player at 24 as I was at 28. It comes with the habit of playing in that kind of situation, of playing with better players.
"What I can say about him is that he is a massive student of the game. Everything he does, he does at 100%.
"I'm as excited as anyone to see how good he is going to be at United. It's definitely a plus to have a guy like Romelu in your team. Anything that drops in the box is usually a goal."
Lukaku scored on his official debut for United, in their 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday night.
