Romelu Lukaku Hits Back At Body Criticism And Insists He Is Unaffected By Harsh Words From United Legend Paul Scholes

Striker Lukaku did not agree with negative comments about his physique, calling it 'bulls***'

Romelu Lukaku has come out fighting against some of his biggest criticisms, hitting back at Manchester United legend Paul Scholes and claiming that negative comments about his physique are ‘bulls***’.

The Manchester United striker is going through a lean period of late, and has attracted negativity from both fans and pundits alike.

One of his most vocal critics has been club legend Paul Scholes, who regularly speaks about Lukaku during his role as a television pundit.

In a recent interview with ESPN, Scholes noted: ‘I’m just not sure you are ever going to win the league with a goalscorer like him,’ and now Lukaku has hit back.

When asked for his thoughts during an Instagram interview with Bleacher Report, he said: ‘I really don’t respond to him. 

‘You know, when I see him before the TV, he still shakes my hand. And then do like everything is normal, so.’

There were also some other traits to his game that have come under fire, and the presenter was keen to get his thoughts on the criticism.

Although happy to admit his first touch always needs work and his lack of goals has been frustrating him, Lukaku held no prisoners with his response about physique.

He also called negative comments about his physique 'BS'

‘That’s some BS!,’ he said. ‘Yeah, that’s some BS. I’m one of the strongest players in the league. I never get injured. I’m always there, so what’s the problem?’

On his woes in front of goal this season, he added: ‘Lately? Yeah, lately. Yeah, yeah. That bothers myself, because I’m a goalscorer. 

‘I want to score goals, I think I’m known for scoring goals, so that’s something that bothers me really.’
