Lukaku Still A Big Part Of Man United’- Solskjaer

Romelu Lukaku still has a key role to play at Manchester United despite starting just one match since Jose Mourinho was sacked as manager, says interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The £75m ex-Everton striker has played for just 74 minutes in Solskjaer’s six league games in charge, but started the FA Cup third-round win over Reading.

Solskjaer has favoured Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

But the Norwegian said Lukaku, 25, remains “a big part of the squad”.

Only Rashford and midfielder Paul Pogba have scored more than the three goals Lukaku has managed since Mourinho was sacked on 18 December.
