Zlatan Ibrahimovic claims Lukaku is making his job easier as he await his comeback to the team.
Ibrahimovic was handed a deal that’ll see him to the end of the season but hasn’t featured for United since April.
“The team is stronger this season,” he told Sky Sports News. “Lukaku is in the team scoring a lot of goals, and he is making the job easier for me, because last year when we were playing we could not change that role.
“We had one scoring the goals, and doing that job, and there was no variations for the coach. This season it is easier. Lukaku is only positive, because he makes my “comeback” less pressured, it gives me a lot of time, and I’m happy for that.
“The more time I get, the better it gets. He’s scoring his goals and doing what he needs to do. When I come back, the coach is there, we will see how things go. I see it very strong. Because the more quality we have in the team, the more alternatives we have, the easier it is for the manager”
Ibrahimovic is expected to return to the team before the year runs out.
