Romelu Lukaku has hit out at critics who labelled him ‘slow’ by claiming he is actually the fastest player at Manchester United. And the Belgium striker has the stats to prove his claim is correct. Romelu Lukaku claims he is the quickest player at Manchester United Like many of United’s star players, Lukaku struggled at the start of the season under Jose Mourinho as the Red Devils recorded their worst ever start to a Premier League season. Fans and critics alike were quick to berate the £75million striker as his touch and his confidence deserted him. In fact, one bookmaker even offered prices on the 25-year-old to miscontrol the ball with his first touch during his lowest point. However, the former Chelsea striker has proved his worth and the stats show he is in fact United’s quickest player this season. Lukaku is much quicker than people give him credit for When answering questions from fans during an Instagram post on the Red Devils’ Instagram post, Lukaku claimed he was quicker than Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw – famed for their explosive pace. And, courtesy of Opta and the Dail Mail, there is now definitive proof he was telling the truth. In the top ten speeds from the season so far, Lukaku features three times and his top speed of 34.89km/h is the time to beat. Diogo Dalot and Ashley Young also take their place among the speed merchants at Old Trafford, but it is Lukaku who comes out on top. The stats back up the Belgian’s claim [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN FOOTBALL” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”popular” /] Under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the striker has returned to form and bagged six goals in three matches at the start of this month. The ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’ will be hoping the MRI scan Lukaku required on his foot reveals no irregularities as they continue to push for a Champions League place.

BITTER Jose Mourinho does not believe ANY of the remaining English sides in the Champions League have what it takes to make the final in Madrid. The former Manchester United and Chelsea gaffer, 56, backs Barcelona and Juventus to battle it out for the “big ears” in June. Jose Mourinho does not believe an English team will win the Champions League title this season Half of the Champions League quarter-finalists are Premier League clubs following Liverpool, Manchester City, United and Tottenham’s heroics in the knock-out stages this season. Spurs and the Citizens glided past Bundesliga sides Borussia Dortmund and Schalke respectively, with Pep Guardiola’s men drubbing their rivals 10-2 on aggregate. Liverpool dumped out start-studded Bayern Munich, winning at Allianz Arena 3-1. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United spectacularly knocked out Paris Saint-Germain after overturning a two-goal deficit away from home as the first side in Champions League history to do so. Meanwhile, Mourinho had led the Red Devils to a second-place finish in their group – resulting in the daunting round of 16 tie with the Ligue 1 champs – before being sacked by the Red Devils board in December. But, still out of job, the Portuguese coach remains unfazed by the English teams’ results this season and says none of them are experienced enough to get to the final at Wanda Metropolitano. He told Calciomercato: “Favourites? I would say Juve and Barcelona. “Everyone talks about Ronaldo and Messi – but I prefer to talk about Juve and Barca. [article-rail-topic title=”MORE MAN UNITED NEWS” term_id=”1480″ posts_number=”8″ /] “The English teams, as well as Ajax and Porto, are good sides too but they don’t have the same amount of experience. “When you have Ronaldo or Messi, it certainly gives you a big plus.” Champions League quarter-finals will take place between April 9 and 10, with reverse fixtures being played the following week.
