“I am like a leopard in the box.”- Lukaku.

Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku has told Sky Sports News that he believes he is “like a leopard in the box” after the striker netted a brace for Belgium to end his recent goal drought.The 24 year old netted two second-half goals as Belgium drew 3-3 against Mexico in a friendly at King Baudouin Stadium following a seven-game drought for his club.Lukaku said: “Yes, it’s a relief but I knew it would come. “I feel great to be honest.”I was born to score. I don’t think many strikers of my generation have as many goals as me. I am like a leopard in the box.”The former Everton and Chelsea forward had made an impressive start in the Premier League before struggling for opportunities over the last month, with last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea no different. When asked about that, Lukaku added: “Lately we haven’t performed like we did at the start of the season. We started by blowing teams away, being dominant and creating chances, but in the last few weeks we didn’t play at the same level and that made it more difficult for me.”“That’s the sort of thing you have to go through in the season, but now there are players coming back from injury and hopefully we can deliver performances even better than at the start of the season.”Jose Mourinho’s men will next welcome Newcastle United to the Old Trafford, and Lukaku would like to continue with his form after the international break.
