Manchester United have some pretty speedy players. From Marcus Rashford to Antonio Valencia to Eric Bailly, there are plenty of speed merchants at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s disposal.
But Romelu Lukaku believes he is faster than the rest of his Manchester United team-mates.
Answering questions on the club’s Instagram account, one supporter quizzed the 25-year-old Belgian over who is the ‘fastest in the group’? And the striker quickly raised his hand while smiling before saying: ‘And people call me slow!’ Lukaku seems to have good reason to believe he can leave his fellow United stars for dust. Last season he recorderd a top speed of 34.84km/h – faster than any of his team-mates.
The forward also laid down three of the top five speeds of any United star in 2017/18, with Rashford and Jesse Lingard also scoring high.
