Former Manchester United manager Owen Hargreaves has spoken out on Romelu Lukaku’s huge improvement since leaving Old Trafford for Inter Milan last summer.
The Belgium international has long been one of the finest forwards in Europe, but his form and confidence seemed to take a real hit during his two seasons at Man Utd.

Speaking about Lukaku now, Hargreaves feels he seemed to carry a heavy burden with him at United…
"I think he got a raw deal at Manchester United."
"He felt like he had a point to prove all the time and almost played like he was carrying that burden."
