There Is No Rest For Romelu Lukaku - Jose Mourinho

There Is No Rest For Romelu Lukaku - Jose Mourinho
Romelu Lukaku And Jose Mourinho

Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho has relied on Lukaku since his arrival from Everton in the Summer and the Belgian had no doubt proven his worth, scoring ten Goals in nine appearances for the Club.

This is a good feet but Jose Mourinho has told the press, he will still heavily rely on the Belgian till the recovery of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and until then Lukaku will be awarded no rest. 

"Without Zlatan, we cannot rotate the striker, especially because Marcus Rashford is playing also in other positions," said Mourinho, whose side face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"So until the moment we have Zlatan, we cannot think about giving rest to our number nine the same way we give in other positions."

Lukaku has played almost every game for Manchester United this season and has been on a very good form, but Jose Mourinho has refused to take credit for that, attributing the strikers form to hard work.

"Every step in his career, he grabbed it with both hands, since his first loan to West Bromwich Albion," Mourinho added. "He grabbed that opportunity with both hands, fighting for his evolution.

"He was very strong in his desire to be playing in a team with other objectives now and with Champions League football. It was always his dream to come to this level.
"He works hard, he rests, he has a great professional life outside the football pitch and he has great ambition.

"So it is a global evolution. It wouldn't be fair if I didn't say that every step in his career with different managers, different players and different teams is not contributing to what he is now.

"Of course now, Manchester United is a different level of expectation and he is coping well."
