The international attacker, who works with assistant manager Thierry Henry in the Belgian national team, believes working with the Arsenal legend has benefitted his career, as did working with Africans Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o, among others.

“Henry is the best thing that has happened to me because since I came to England aged 18 I have had the best mentors,” he told NBC.

“I have had possibly the five best strikers of the last ten years as mentors.

“I had Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and now, Thierry Henry. That’s not bad, is it?

“It is the best thing that could happen in my career because I am a young guy.

“Thierry for me is the best. Every day whether it is positive and negative I take it in my stride because I know what is expected from the top level.

"Working with him in Belgium I really take my time with him asking questions, I don't take him for granted, I sometimes ask him questions for two hours.

"I will get the information that I need and take it on board."

Players With 200 Goals Or More In One League

Lukaku has scored four goals in his first four games for United, following his £76.23 million (R1.2 billion) move from Everton.
