Romelu Lukaku: Why I Wanted To Work Under Jose Mourinho Again
Former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed why wanted to work under Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho again.
The 24-year-old striker moved to 2016/17 UEFA Europa League champions from Everton for a reported fee of £75 million (R1.26 billion).
The Belgium international reportedly snubbed the opportunity to rejoin his former club, the Blues, in order to fulfil his childhood dream.
"I wanted to play for him since I was 11 so when you get another chance like that you don't turn it down and I'm really grateful for the second opportunity," said Lukaku, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
"He's always been the same; a man that wants the best out of the players every day. He doesn't give the players time to rest on the pitch, he really wants everyone to fight on the pitch and in training, and that's what I like about him.
"He's someone you can talk to, and whatever you say he's going to listen to you, so I like that a lot."
Lukaku has made an impressive start to his Manchester United career, as he has scored four goals in four games.
