Romelu Lukaku made his first appearance for Manchester United against LA Galaxy on Saturday evening.
Jose Mourinho sent the club’s £75 million summer signing on for the second half, with United already 3-0 up and cruising.
Big summer signings at other Premier League clubs have recently scored on their unofficial ‘debuts’ – including the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Wayne Rooney and Mohamed Salah – but Lukaku was unable to add his name to that list.
He did, however, have plenty of opportunities to open his account.
And one of his shots – a speculative effort from outside the box which found Row Z of the Stubhub Centre – went viral on social media.
There are some Chelsea fans who are desperate for Lukaku to fail.
Scorned after he rejected their club in favour of a move to Old Trafford, a number of Chelsea supporters on Twitter clearly hope that he shows his ‘true colours’ with the Red Devils and flops.
One Chelsea fan on Twitter – @ConteMindset – has even created a two-minute video showing Lukaku’s individual ‘highlights’ against LA Galaxy.
To be fair, it’s pretty funny.
