Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has explained why he decided to drop striker, Romelu Lukaku from Sunday’s Premier League clash with Everton.
Lukaku has received lots of criticisms over the last few weeks after going eight games without scoring a goal for the Red Devils.
Recall that Mourinho had suggested that Lukaku would retain his place in the side but he was named on the bench for the visit of Everton to Old Trafford.
“The reason is he is playing lots of matches and lately, not just not scoring goals.” Metro UK quoted him as saying.
“But also not showing lots of confidence and sometimes we decide that the best thing for the players is to not be on the pitch, to be protected and away from the initial pressure.
“If he comes into the game later, he will come with a positive feeling of trying to make a difference and be back to normality because normally with Romelu, he scores lots of goals.
“So I think he is under pressure a little bit because he is not doing that.”
