Romelu Lukaku Verbally Destroys Manchester United Fan Who Mocked His First Touch

Romelu Lukaku's savage response to a fan who attempted to mock his first touch has gone viral.

The 28-year-old scored 24 goals in 36 appearances last season to fire Inter Milan to their first Serie A title in a decade.

He's also netted three times in Belgium's first three group games at Euro 2020 - but many still refuse to acknowledge his fine form.

During a Twitter Q&A on Wednesday, a Manchester United supporter tried to discredit the club's former forward with a tweet about his technique.

The fan questioned: "How come you couldn't even control the ball at United but turned up at Inter? I mean you could not contain simple passes made to you."

Lukaku, who has put his tough spell at Old Trafford behind him, replied: "I wouldn't play at this level if I couldn't control a ball the f**k."

Despite hitting the ground running after a £75 million move from Everton in 2017, Lukaku did struggle for consistent form with the Red Devils.

Many criticised his lack of ability up front and claimed he wasn't fit to lead the line of an elite European team.

When asked about the difference between playing in the Premier League and Serie A, Lukaku said: "Two great cities. Just the game is different, you've got to use your brains more in Italy.

"Something they said I couldn't do. Serie [A] is really tough tactically. Every game is different.

"Sometimes you only get one chance a game so you got to take it."

Lukaku hit back at his critics last year in an extensive interview with the Times.

Current United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made a decision on the former Everton man's future, but Lukaku insists he wasn't 'phoning it in' before a transfer in 2019.

He stated: "Stuff happens in football but it's something you need to explain to the next generation of kids, that you need to have full control over your destiny. Make sure when you go somewhere that every piece of the puzzle has to be right.

"Know what I mean? At the time, we saw the outcome, we saw how I did.

"And if you look at me now you see a different outcome, you see the full person, you see the full potential. You see what I could have been doing in England.

"They will call me slow and I'm like, 'Slow? Me, slow? I cannot keep up with the fast pace game of Man United? There were too many little things where I thought this is not right."
