Marcus Rashford has revealed how Romelu Lukaku emerged on the big scene by helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer win the Round of 16. Lukaku proved to be the ultimate team player as he pushed Rashford to be the star. Rashford completed the comeback by scoring a last-minute penalty which left fans shocked.
He tweeted, “Let me tell you a little story about Romelu Lukaku. We are playing PSG in the second leg of the Champions League, with little hope of qualifying. 2-0 down on agg. 2 mins in, Rom scores. 30 mins in, Rom scores. We need one more goal to qualify. 94th min – penalty… Rom steps up picks up the ball and hands it to me. He knew this was my moment.”
He knew it would be me that got all news coverage for scoring that penalty and he was ok with that, ignoring the fact that he was the most instrumental part of that win. That tells you all you need to know about Romelu Lukaku. Selfless, a team player… Never afraid to dim his light for others to shine. That’s my brother and I appreciate him.”
Lukaku wasn’t very famous among the United fanbase but has since emerged in the Serie A. He scored 34 goals in his debut season, equalling the tally of the Brazilian Ronaldo in his first season at Inter Milan. Lukaku recently said Italy was the best country he had played in, and he believes he has developed as a player since making the switch from the Premier League.
