Romelu Lukaku Has Now Been Made Into A Verb

Romelu Lukaku's second season at Manchester United is going far from well.

The 25-year-old Belgian international has failed to replicate his form from last season, with the Red Devils currently sitting in sixth place in the Premier League.

Well, it looks like football fans have turned his name into a verb.

Yeah, we're actually being serious. It's not official from the Oxford Dictionaries -- not yet at least -- but it could easily be up there for the 'Best Verb of 2018' award.

According to fans, here's what Romelu Lukaku means as a verb:

"Past tense: Lukaku'd

"1. To lose something under your control; mishandling due to lack of ability and/or concentration.

"E.g., 'I really like this girl, everything is going so well, I pray I don't Lukaku it.'"

Oh, and he's even made it into Urban Dictionary!

The former Everton star, who was recently voted as the worst player in the Premier League, has responded to criticism he has faced online about his physique this season.

Will Lukaku be able to rediscover his form at United this season?

Let us know in the comments.
