Why I Play Football With So Much Anger – Lukaku
Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku, has revealed why he plays football with so much anger.
In an interview with The Player Tribune, the Belgium international disclosed lots of reasons that make him play football with annoyance.
Lukaku, who is currently representing Belgium at the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, said, “I wanted to be the best footballer in Belgian history. That was my goal. Not good. Not great. The best.
“I played with so much anger, because of a lot of things … because of the rats running around in our apartment … because I couldn’t watch the Champions League … because of how the other parents used to look at me. I was on a mission. When I was 12, I scored 76 goals in 34 games.”
Lukaku scored a brace for Belgium’s World Cup opener against Panama on Monday as they won 3-0.
The former Chelsea star will lead Belgium attack in their second Group G clash against Tunisia on Saturday afternoon.
