Sånn apropos Lukaku:
However, in an interview with the New York Times, Lukaku says he was aware of criticism of his performances that led him to 'imagine how it would feel to leave the club.'
The Belgian says he felt he and teammate Pogba were made scapegoats for United's troubles, and told the Frenchman he wanted to leave while the pair were in Australia.
"There was a feeling that Pogba and I were guilty of the fall of Manchester United.
“From the beginning it was a ‘Yes, but...’. I scored in the European Super Cup and they said, ‘Yes, but he got another one wrong’. When I first started out in the Premier League, I scored against West Ham and they said, ‘Yeah, but...’. Since then I imagined how it would feel to leave the club. One year at United erases the previous eight.”
