Romelu Lukaku has said he doesn’t see his two year spell at Manchester United in a negative way.
The 26-years-old Belgian signed £75 million with United under Jose Mourihno in 2017. Lukaku scored 42 goals in 96 appearances but the club was unsatisfied with his performances.
“The period there (United) had made me calmer.” He said to reporters at the Global Soccer Gala in Dubai when he was asked about his time at Old Trafford.
“I don’t look at it in a negative way; it really helped me mentally to be ready and to grow as a player and as a person.
“I will never see it as a bad experience because it helped me be where I am today.”
Still, he was disillusioned with the club and he left to join Serie A giants, Inter Milan, in 2019 where he has netted 12 league goals in 17 appearances.
Lukaku also revealed he feels more comfortable in the Italian club than he did in Manchester United.
“Clearly now that I’m at Inter there are benefits from what I learned in Manchester both from a sporting and non-sporting point of view.
“I prepared a lot and I am much calmer. In my head, there is much more serenity and composure.
“I am a person who when things are not going well, shows it through so much anger. I’m stronger after the Manchester United experience.”
