The Belgium international, who has been in prolific goalscoring form since joining Inter at the beginning of the season, was speaking in an interview with Sky Sports when he was asked which managers were able to get the best out of him. 

"I think (Belgium manager) Roberto Martinez, (former Everton boss) Ronald Koeman and now Antonio Conte," Lukaku replied.

"I think Jose Mourinho, if he would have had the players that he wanted, we would have done better than what we did (at Manchester United).

"Steve Clarke (formerly of West Bromwich Albion), massive mention to him, because he gave me the opportunity to play in the Premier League aged 19.

"And obviously my first coach at Anderlecht, Ariel Jacobs, who gave me the chance when I'd barely turned 16. He called me from school, they called me like, 'Yo, you have to come with the first team', and he played me straight away.

"Those are the coaches that, forever, I will respect them. At the end of the day, I'm always an open-minded guy and at the end of the day, as a footballer, you have to do what your manager asks.

"I've never had any problem with any manager I've had – it shows my professionalism and my willingness to work."
