Nemanja Matic is confident that Romelu Lukaku will score plenty of goals for Manchester United this season following his strike against Real Madrid.
The Belgium international, signed from Everton for a reported initial fee of £75 million last month, netted in the second half of his competitive debut in United’s 2-1 UEFA Super Cup loss on Tuesday.
“It’s very important for us that our strikers score goals,” Matic told MUTV. “It’s very important for confidence.
“As you know, he missed a very good chance but this can happen – it’s football. But I am happy for him that he scored a goal after that and I’m sure that he will continue to score goals and that he will score many this season.”
