Koeman: Replacing Lukaku Is A Big Ask

Koeman: Replacing Lukaku Is A Big Ask

Jose Mourinho has described Manchester United's record goalscorer Wayne Rooney as "a legend for this club" ahead of his first return to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Former Manchester United striker Saha, who played alongside Rooney at Old Trafford during his spell at the Theatre of Dreams, is confident the Everton striker will leave his mark at Old Trafford once again but this time in blue on Sunday.

Lukaku, 24, went the opposite direction, joining United for a fee which could rise to £90m, but despite scoring six goals in as many appearances, Mourinho explained why his new No 9 will find it hard to match Rooney's 253-goal haul.

I think he is clearly one of the most important players in the history of Manchester United.

"The way they live, the way they train, the way everything is simple for them, I see them as kids".

Over 100 people were evacuated from the Hollywood Hills facility on Wednesday after days without air conditioning. Six people at a Florida nursing home that was left without power for days after Hurricane Irma have died.

"I just think he loves football", says Mourinho.

Mourinho had previously worked with the Belgian striker at Stamford Bridge but dismissed their personal relationship as a factor in the transfer, claiming finances including personal terms and the agent's cut were the key.

"I think that we paid the money that Everton asked for and we paid the player the wages that his agent asked for and we paid the agents the commission that they asked for". We paid what Everton asked for. For sure I would have kept some of the players that were sold, for sure I would not buy some of the players that were bought.

'With Romelu my club made a decision to pay and they got him'.

Mourinho played down his impact in landing the Belgium worldwide, who has already netted six goals this season, amid apparent interest from Chelsea.
