Manchester United have always enjoyed a host of great partnerships, be it the era of the United trinity of George Best, Denis Law, and Sir Bobby Charlton, or the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez linking up to slot home incredible goals.
Now, the trio of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial are rising to be the next big names for the English giants, and here’s what the Belgian striker is doing to ensure that happens: The new arrival stays late, putting in extra hours, and trains with Rashford and Martial at Carrington, as reported by The Sun.
The same publication, which is believed to be quoting a reliable United source, revealed: “[Lukaku] has been an absolute diamond since he has arrived at the club. He has taken upon himself to work with the other young lads. They are regularly staying behind for hours.”
The ex-Everton man has scored 6 goals in 6 Premier League appearances for United, whilst also managing to find the back of the net in the UEFA Super Cup and Champions League matches. Rashford and Martial, on the other hand, have scored 5 goals between them, and recently delivered an electric performance against Burton in the EFL Cup.
As to the nature of their antics, the source stated: “The three of them are working on a number of things, runs, shooting, the cohesion and so on.”
Moreover, it appears that Jose Mourinho is thoroughly impressed with the efforts that the youngsters are putting in to ensure positive results.
The source added: “Jose has been very impressed by the lengths they are all willing to go to. It has been a great start for Romelu at the club. Romelu is young himself, so there is a real camaraderie between the three of them. It’s great to see.”
It is undeniable that their ages and constant hunger to perform and give their best will translate into power-driven performances for the Red Devils, and immensely entertaining football for their supporters. They will next be in action on Wednesday against CSKA Moscow in their second match in the UEFA Champions League.
