Romelu Lukaku is Manchester United’s in-form player at the moment. His absence was dearly felt during the Red Devils’ 2-1 loss away at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
He’s now spending this international break trying to recover in time before United get back in action this coming Saturday at Old Trafford. However, that hasn’t stopped him fulfilling his United media duties…
Yesterday, the official United Instagram account uploaded a video of Lukaku being asked about who the fasted player at the club is.
You’re probably thinking Marcus Rashford, or perhaps Antonio Valencia? Nope, as you can see from the clip below, Lukaku raises his own hand in the air, while also joking ‘and people think I’m slow!’…
I’ll be the first to admit that you don’t really think of Lukaku when this question is first raised, but he’s certainly no slouch.
For a big man he’s extremely quick, and after doing some digging, Lukaku is right to believe in his own ability. Last season, he was the quickest player at United, recording a speed of 34.84 km/h. That’s obviously nothing to be sniffed at.
This is a lad who has the power and physical attributes but also the elite quickness as well. It’s no wonder that he’s an absolute nightmare for opposing defenders and we’re certainly lucky to have him.
