The Belgian striker netted for the first time since a big-money transfer from Everton in a 2-1 victory for the Red Devils over Real Salt Lake
Romelu Lukaku has expressed his delight after scoring in Manchester United colours for the first time since arriving from Everton.
It was a night to remember for £75million signing Lukaku, who opened his United account in Monday’s 2-1 pre-season win over MLS outfit Real Salt Lake.
After making his debut during last week’s 5-2 rout of LA Galaxy, Lukaku went one step further at Rio Tinto Stadium, putting United ahead six minutes before half-time.
“Obviously, I’m here to score goals and be a focal point for the team,” the Belgium international told MUTV.
“At Manchester United, we play to win. That’s my first mentality when I get onto the pitch. Then everything else comes with it.”
“I’m here to score goals.”
Premier League giants United did not have it all their own way after falling behind in the first half and seeing Antonio Valencia sent off with 22 minutes remaining.
