Following Roma’s 2-1 victory over Lecce, José Mourinho made a revelation about Romelu Lukaku. He claimed to know the Belgian very well, and to him, he is a very sensitive man.
Romelu Lukaku missed a penalty in the 5th minute against Lecce before scoring the winning goal in stoppage time. For Mourinho, missing a penalty certainly hurt Big Rom. Scoring is therefore a relief for him. “I know him better than anyone. Lukaku is a very, very sensitive man. When he misses a penalty early on, his heart hurts for the rest of the match. That’s why scoring the winning goal in the last minute couldn’t have come at a better time. Romelu will sleep better and wake up smiling,” said Mourinho, quoted by Corriere dello Sport.
