Romelu Lukaku was the star of the show when Manchester United visited Parc des Princes earlier this week, as his brace helped the Red Devils proceed to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The star striker bagged the first two goals on the night, with Marcus Rashford’s late goal from the spot ultimately helping the visitors secure a 3-1 win and qualify for the next round on the basis of the away goals rule.
Lukaku played a minor part in the match-winning penalty as well, as he allowed Rashford to take the all-important kick, whilst also motivating the Englishman to do his best for the entire team.
The 25-year-old performed brilliantly for the entirety of the game, and now, new footage shows that he was just as classy even after the final whistle.
Post full-time, while all the Manchester United players celebrated their historic win, Lukaku approached Presnel Kimpembe – the man responsible for conceding the penalty late in the game.
The Belgian international was seen consoling the PSG defender, and now, French outlet RMC Sport have revealed what the ex-Everton star said to the 23-year-old.
“That’s it, this is the nature of football,” Lukaku reportedly said to Kimpembe. “There are times when you learn, even if you’re world champion.”
Kimpembe, who won the 2018 World Cup with France, will definitely require some time to get over this defeat to Manchester United. However, Lukaku’s classy gesture is sure to provide some respite to the talented young centre-back.
