Romelu Lukaku Says All the Right Things After Manchester United UCL Exit

Romelu Lukaku Says All the Right Things After Manchester United UCL Exit

Romelu Lukaku has taken his share of the blame for Manchester United‘s shock Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla last night.

The Belgian striker had a difficult night alongside the rest of his teammates as they struggled against the La Liga outfit.

Having a 0-0 draw from the first leg in Spain, United would have been confident of getting the result they needed to advance last night.

But that didn’t work out for Jose Mourinho and his men as Wissam Ben Yedder scored a double late on to put the tie out of sight for United.

Lukaku did hit one back for the hosts, but they were unable to get back into the game and Sevilla held on for the win.

Fresh from the shock defeat, Lukaku took to Instagram this morning to share his reaction – and credit to him for facing up to it:

United need to bounce back quickly as they play Brighton in the FA Cup on Saturday – and that’s even more important now it’s the only competition they have a realistic chance of winning in.

For Lukaku and the rest of his teammates, they need to show that the Sevilla performance was just a one off and they can finish the season as strongly as they possibly can.
