Jose Mourinho Explains Romelu Lukaku's Dip in Form
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has explained why Romelu Lukaku's form has dipped in recent months.
The Belgium international started the season in fine form, having scored 10 goals in his opening 11 matches.
However, Lukaku has only scored four times in his last 19 appearances all competitions and Mourinho claims the striker is tired.
: “No I can't. The boy is tired. He's physically a monster, but not a machine, and he's feeling it.
“First of all, people doesn't have to be grateful to Romelu, I have to be, not you, not the supporters, not the pundits.
“I have to be, and the other day I said 19 matches in the Premier League, now I say 20 matches in the Premier League, playing 90 minutes, I think for a striker, any player, he's absolutely incredible.
“But if you are a central defender, a holding midfield player, where you can control you're energy, positional play, you can resist and survive.
