Matic Confident Lukaku Can Print Many Goals For Manchester United This Season
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic believes Romelu Lukaku will score many goals for his team this season following an unsatisfactory performance against Real Madrid.
The Belgian international who was brought in from Everton for an initial fee of £ 75m last month actually scored a goal in United’s defeat of Real Madrid in the European Super Cup, on Wednesday (9/8) early morning GMT. However, he also missed some chances that should be a goal in the game.
“It’s important for us that our striker scored,” Matic told MUTV. “It’s very important for her confidence.”
“As you know, he missed a very good chance but this could happen – it’s football but I’m happy for him that he scored after that and I’m sure that he will continue to score and he will score many goals this season.”
Prepare for West Ham
Nemanja Matic who came to Old Trafford from Chelsea this summer was frustrated with the defeat of Real Madrid. But he asked United to shift their full focus to Sunday’s league opener against West Ham.
“We tried everything to equalize and then win the game,” said the former Chelsea player.
“But they are very experienced and they also have some chances to score another goal because in the end we try to follow all the things to score and they have some counterattacks.
“On Sunday we had a very important game at Old Trafford ahead of all our supporters. We have to rest and be ready to face West Ham, “said Matic. (Source: Four Four Two)
