Manchester United manager José Mourinho has hailed “untouchable” frontman Romelu Lukaku.
“Romelu is untouchable in my team and should also be in terms of the support from the fans,” he told the press ahead of a Tuesday night Champions League meeting with Benfica. “He’s playing extremely well for us.”
“The fans are free to express themselves as they want. But my job is to protect my players and Romelu should be untouchable.”
“I don’t think Romelu’s quiet at all. Ask [Tottenham defenders] Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Eric Dier if he was quiet!”
