Arsenal legend Martin Keown has come down heavily on Manchester United striker as he compares him with a ‘pussycat’ on the pitch, especially in the Champions League game against Juventus.
Lukaku has not been in fine form and he looks like he is not bothered but Keown has a problem with that, stating that the body language of the Belgium striker is negative because he lacks the desire and push from within.
The Arsenal legend is marvelled that a player with such strength has failed to have it impactful, instead, he played like a ‘pussycat’ each time he is on the field this season.
Keown said Lukaku was bullied by Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci and could not rescue himself with his much gifted strength.
Lukaku has not scored a single goal in 8 games for the Red Devils which is quite unusual for the former Chelsea man.
As a result of the 1-0 defeat suffered in the hands of the Italian champions, the Red Devils can no longer hold the claim on the Group H as they are five points behind leaders, Juve.
It has been a bad season for United having struggles in all competitions so far this season with a 10th place position in the Premier League table after 9 games.
