Lukaku Takes Swipe At Teammates Over Mourinho Spats

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, who has a great relationship with superstar Paul Pogba, has seemingly backed Jose Mourinho over his personal disputes with his players.

Man Utd Transfer Rumours: Five In, Five Out?

The Portuguese tactician has had more than one spat with players since he arrived at the Red Devils, with the likes of Pogba, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial having felt the boss' wrath over the past couple of seasons.

While some players have reacted badly to Mourinho's criticism in the past, Lukaku believes they simply need to "deal with it".

"I think he has a good relationship with the players," he told Bleacher Report.

"I don't really pay attention to what his relationship is with the other players, to be honest. I don't think it's something that should affect me.

"If he has an argument with somebody, I mean, deal with it, man. You're a growna** man, deal with it."

Lukaku has been scrutinised heavily this season by supporters and media, although his manager has leapt to his defence on a number of occasions.

Reports: Man Utd To Sign French Wonderkid

The forward has scored just four goals and assisted one further strike in 15 matches across all competitions for United so far this season.
