Scott McTominay feels that Romelu Lukaku is the strongest player in the world.
Over the years, the Premier League has seen several excellent strikers for the Red Devils. Goals were never an issue back then, from Eric Cantona and Ruud van Nistelrooy to Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. But when it comes to sheer strength, Lukaku is on par with their all-time greatest strikers.
Romelu Lukaku, who cost £75 million to join Manchester United in 2017, spent two years there after leaving Everton, according to Scott McTominay, who believes the player is the best in the world (BBC).
In 96 games, the Belgian led the team in goals scored with 42 and assists with 13. Despite the fact that his tenure at Old Trafford was not well received and that he was sold in 2019, it appears that one member of the team still has positive memories of him.
After spending his whole career at Manchester United, Scott McTominay sat down with Goal to play a brief game in which he had to name one player for each category in order to construct the ideal footballer.
He selected Lionel Messi for the left foot and Cristiano Ronaldo for the right leg.
Superstar Kylian Mbappe of PSG was chosen for his speed, Neymar for his skills, and McTominay’s first response when asked about football IQ was Andrea Pirlo.
The sole remaining category was strength, and McTominay chose Lukaku right away because he has played both alongside and against the player throughout the years.
Lukaku has amazing strength.
Romelu Lukaku is incredibly difficult to stop when he is using all of his might.
The Belgian, who plays football for AS Roma in Italy right now, excels in duels. One of his greatest advantages is that he can compete with nearly everyone in the game and win.
McTominay is correct; Lukaku is on par with the world’s best players, if not the best football player overall.
It’s unfortunate that he was unable to succeed at the top level in England, not just at Manchester United but also at Chelsea.
