Manchester United brand new striker Romelu Lukaku has already impressed club legend Ruud van Nistelrooy with his start to life at his new club.
Lukaku, 24, came in from Everton in a £75 million deal this summer and has scored three times in as many EPL games, while also netting a goal in the UEFA Super Cup loss to Real Madrid.
“He’s done great,” Van Nistelrooy said. “To score in your first games here after you have been transferred for a lot of money, it is nice to get that pressure out of the way and get your first goals in.
“He has done well. Not only scoring but also providing, making his runs and doing his work. So it looks good for the season.
“There’s always pressure to score here [at United] — but that also makes it interesting, dealing with that. The goals are expected and if you don’t score there is a lot of talk about you not scoring. Then there’s pressure on the next game.”
“They had a great preseason and continued that at the start of the league,” he said. “The only team with nine points, 10 goals and none against. They have had a wonderful start.
“The Champions League will start now so I’m very excited to see how they will do there. They look impressive at the moment and they can challenge this season for the big ones.”
