When questioned about the reasons behind his departure, Romelu Lukaku said, “I made my decision around March, and I went to the manager's office and told him it was time for me to find something else. I wasn't performing and I wasn't playing. I think it was better for both sides to go separate ways. I think I made the right decision. Manchester United has made space for the younger players to come through so I think it was a win-win situation for both of us.”
The former Manchester United forward had an interesting view when it came to ex-coach Jose Mourinho. Romelu Lukaku remarked, “I think Roberto Martinez, Ronald Koeman and now Antonio Conte. I think Jose Mourinho - if he would have had the players that he wanted, he would have done better than what we did."
