Whose bad was Luke?
Former Liverpool defender Phil Thompson has compared the signing of Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku to a deal with Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
He told Paddy Power: “Yeah, it’s got worse – you could see the problems in Jose Mourinho’s days. If Jose Mourinho couldn’t
Handle this guy, you’ll wonder who else can.
“Look, he’s had some good games, but so he should pay Manchester United for money.
“And it’s amazing when you think about the amount of a good appearance compared to the amount spent on it, that cost feels even more astronomical.
“I think it’s been a really tough place for Man United management and there are ten hogs as a real job. But getting Pogba out of the way has helped them.
“I read that he was offered £290,000 a week and didn’t think it was enough – what a game! What a cheek.
“I hope Man United had not offered him that kind of money because if he had accepted it, it would not have helped him in the coming season.”
