Romelu Lukaku Has Been Given the Nickname ‘Rocky’ by His Man Utd team-mates

Romelu Lukaku Has Been Given the Nickname ‘Rocky’ by His Man Utd team-mates

Romelu Lukaku has been given a pretty impressive new nickname by his team-mates at Manchester United with the rest of the Red Devils squad naming him after Sylvester Stallone’s most famous character.

The Belgian striker has endured an up-and-down debut season at Old Trafford, with his 32 goals in 53 appearances for club and country still not enough to persuade some supporters of his potential to become an elite player at the club.

However, if fans aren’t impressed by his goal-scoring prowess, they might be by his work-rate – as the rest of his colleagues obviously are.

According to the Sun, Lukaku has been absolutely smashing training and wants to be peak for the World Cup and Belgium, and he’s been working so hard behind the scenes in recent months that he now goes by the moniker Rocky, with the club’s stars openly impressed with his inspirational displays.

We have no idea if his work in the gym will pay off come the summer, but Rocky did always manage to win the title, eh?

What do you think?
