Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed that he is not worried about fighting for a starting place with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Ibrahimovic announced his decision to rejoin the club following an impressive last season, and Lukaku believes its the best decision for the team.
“I said to Zlatan I hoped he would be back. We need his personality,” he said. “He will bring many qualities to the team, and help us in our goal of winning the title.”
“I don’t fear the competition as a striker, or Zlatan. Things are going really well for me at United. The pre-season was good and it helped knowing a lot of the players before arriving.
“The manager has helped me a lot to settle quickly, so it has all been very positive. I am now with a coach that I have wanted to play with for a long time, since I was 11 years of age. And with him we are looking to do something special.
“For me it is all about progressing and learning in my career, and all the coaches I have had have helped me with that.”
Ibrahimovic is still recovering from his knee issue and has refused to put a date on his return to action, though United manager Jose Mourinho believes it will be in January.
