​Carrick says Lukaku will face ‘massive jump’ in pressure at United

Manchester United skipper Michael Carrick has warned new-signing Romelu Lukaku that he will witness a ‘massive jump’ in the pressure at his new club.

The £75m signing from Everton made his debut for United in the pre-season friendly against LA Galaxy on Saturday night.

The Belgian failed to find the net in the 5-2 win for the Red Devils.

“It’s a jump anyway (coming to United),” Carrick said.

“I found that myself coming from Tottenham. it’s a massive jump.

“You can’t really explain to people until they’ve gone through it. I’m sure he’ll find the same. But having Premier League experience is a massive bonus.

He’ll know how things work week to week. It’s just about dealing with the pressure.”
