Manchester United striker, Romelu Lukaku, has launched a scathing attack on former Belgium boss Marc Wilmots, admitting he didn’t want to play for his country with him in charge.
Wilmots spent four years in charge of Belgium, but failed to take their ‘golden generation’ past the last eight of the 2014 World Cup or Euro 2016.
Lukaku feels as though he never had the full faith of Wilmots during his time in charge.
“I knew I was going to play. The only problem was I also knew he didn’t want to play me.
“In that type of situation, you tell yourself ‘f*** off, leave me at home, don’t pick me’.
“You play for your country for pleasure. I never said I didn’t want to play here, but at that time, I didn’t enjoy being a part of it: I didn’t like getting selected,” Lukaku told DHNet.
