Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku has revealed he feels his game has improved after just one week of playing under the watchful eye of his new manager Jose Mourinho.

In a report by the ​Daily Mirror, Lukaku spoke-out regarding how the self-proclaimed 'special one' has improved him as a footballer in such a short period of time.

The Belgian international recently scored his first goal for United as the Red Devils beat Major League Soccer outfit Real Salt Lake 2-1 during the second game of their pre-season tour in the USA.

Following the match, the 24-year-old, who joined from Everton for £75m, said he had already added to his skills as a player after re-uniting with the former Chelsea boss in the states.


“He knows what I can bring to the team and he’s someone who is pushing me,” said Lukaku.

"I push myself too, but he makes me a better player. I think I learned a lot from him in the last week and I’m glad I can work with him. He said I had to keep doing what I’m doing. I’m happy for my goal.

“There’s still a lot of work to do, as a team we know we need to be much better.

“But I’m glad I’m here ­because you really see it’s a big club and that was the ­challenge, the move I wanted. I’m very happy now. I have to make sure I stay focused and have the same ambition I’ve always had and work hard – that’s the key to success.”
