Lukaku claims he is the fastest player at Manchester United


Romelu Lukaku has made the bold claim that he is the fastest player in the Manchester United squad and hit back at critics who slam his mobility.

The Belgium international has spent spare time over the international break answering questions for United supporters, when one fan queried who was the greatest pace merchant at Old Trafford.

United boast the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial who have evidenced on various occasions that they can leave opponents for dead, but Lukaku believes he holds the title.

While some may doubt him, Lukaku has figures behind him which back up the extraordinary claim.

As well as statistically emerging as the fastest on the pitch this season, he also recorded United’s quickest sprint of 34.84km/h in the 2017-18 campaign, and was responsible for three of the club’s five quickest on-pitch sprints of the season.

United are still waiting on the fitness of Lukaku, after the 25-year-old had to pull out of the Belgium camp due to injury.

United will be banking on Lukaku returning sooner rather than later, as they still harbour hopes of securing a place in the Champions League for next season.

United currently sit in fifth place in the division, two points adrift of rivals Arsenal in the coveted fourth spot.

Solskjaer announced as Full-time Manager of Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has signed a three-year contract at Manchester United after impressing during his stint as caretaker manager.

The Norwegian, who returned to Old Trafford in December, has been given the reins by Ed Woodward and the Glazer family after leading his side to 14 wins from 19 games.

It is understood that Solskjaer was offered the job on a permanent basis earlier this week in a face-to-face meeting with executive vice chairman Woodward at the club’s training facility.

His deal is worth around £7million a year, less than half the £18m basic the club were understood to have been paying the Norwegian’s predecessor Jose Mourinho.

United will pay an undisclosed ‘ex gratia’ payment, thought to be in six figures, to Solskjaer’s former club Molde. They are under no obligation to do so, but will make the payment as what an Old Trafford insider described as ‘a goodwill gesture’.

Solskjaer has already discussed summer transfer targets at length with the club. Funds are available to strengthen and, according to a club source, will now ‘advance to the next level’.

The source added: ‘This was not simply about results. This was about Ole’s whole approach, his style, his man management and his strong connection to the club’s culture.’

Solskjaer may add to his backroom team but the likes of Michael Carrick, Kieran McKenna and Emilio Alvarez are all going nowhere. Nothing has yet been confirmed on the future of Mike Phelan.
