Romelu Lukaku Told PSG's Presnel Kimpembe 'These Are The Times You Learn' After Costly Handball

Manchester United players darted towards their away fans when the final whistle finally went in the Parc des Princes on Wednesday, but Romelu Lukaku took time to console Presnel Kimpembe in a wonderful moment.

United's No.9 was seen giving the Frenchman words of encouragement after the Frenchman's last-gasp handball ultimately cost his side.


Although Lukaku cupped his mouth so that the conversation could remain private but RMC Sport have picked it up on what the Belgian striker said to the 23-year old.

"That's it, this is the nature of football," Lukaku told Kimpembe. "There are times when you learn, even if you're world champion."

Class words of encouragement from Lukaku.

Lukaku would then join his United teammates in sharing the moment with the travelling fans in the corner before he and Paul Pogba, would then brilliantly shut down rumours of a bust-up by gesturing on the pitch after the enthralling game.

The Sun claimed the pair had a dressing room fight over the missed penalty at Southampton but they didn't exactly look like they were about to come to blows any second here?
