Mourinho Discusses Lukaku’s Goal Drought

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has discussed Romelu Lukaku's lack of goals in recent weeks, with the forward once again failing to find the back of the net in the Red Devils' 4-2 win over Watford on Tuesday night.

Mourinho: Why I Was Shocked By Young's Free-Kick

The Belgium international, who cost the Old Trafford side £75 million (R1.37 billion) at the beginning of the season, has scored only one goal in his past 11 matches for the Red Devils.

When asked about the striker's dip in form, Mourinho praised Lukaku's general work rate on the field, and joked that perhaps the forward needs a new boot deal as his previous one had come to an end.

"He needs a big contract with boots," the United boss said, as quoted by The Independent.

"At this moment, he doesn't have a contract with any brand. That is why he is playing with the black boots. He needs a brand to give him the right boots and to pay the right money, so he goes back to goals. He finished the deal. Now he is waiting for the right offer and is playing in black boots.

"Jokes apart, he works amazingly well for the team. I would never blame a player like him for that easy chance he missed. Never. With me, he knows that he doesn't have that pressure. He is a fantastic player and an amazing professional. High ambition, a great colleague. I couldn't be happier with him."

Mourinho Worried About Losing Man Utd Star

The 24-year-old has made 21 appearances for Mourinho's side so far this season, scoring 12 goals and assisting a further four strikes.
