Romelu Lukaku: Striker says it is time to ‘move on’

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku says he wants the club’s fans to “move on” from their controversial chant about him.

Anti-discrimination group Kick It Out have described the lyrics, about the size of the 24-year-old’s penis, as “offensive and discriminatory”.

 “Great backing since I joined #MUFC,” Lukaku was quoted as saying on United’s official Twitter account.

“Fans have meant well with their songs but let’s move on together.”

“Racist stereotypes are never acceptable, irrespective of any intention to show support for a player,” said Kick It Out earlier this week.

United posted on social media ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion – in which Belgium forward Lukaku was an unused substitute – that “action will be taken against any offensive behaviour”, reminding supporters of the club’s commitment to racial harmony.

Midway through the first half a chant was heard at Old Trafford about Lukaku but with fans having appeared to tweak the words.

Lukaku joined United for an initial £75m from Everton during the summer in a deal that could rise to £90m.

He has scored five Premier League goals in five games for his new club as well as finding the net in the 3-0 Champions League group win over Basel.

Lukaku also scored in the European Super Cup against Real Madrid last month.
