I think I have got a nice record. I’ve scored a lot this season and I just want to keep going.”“You expect a bit more respect but it’s the situation we’re in,” he told Britain’s Press Association. “I don’t listen to it. I just want to improve and show the people what I can do on the pitch.”Lukaku, who has scored 22 goals in all competitions for United this season, is two goals away from joining 27 other players to score 100 Premier League goals.The Belgian relishes the pressure that comes with “playing for the biggest club in the world” and does not regret spurning the chance to return to Chelsea last year.“No, no, no,” said the former Everton player. “When I make a choice it’s with my head and my heart. I made the right choice for me.“As you can see, I’m in a good situation. I’m with a manager and players who push me every day. The challenge is there to win and it’s something that I wanted.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
