Romelu Lukaku questions ‘hunger’ of next generation footballers

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has questioned the younger of the next generation of players.

The 25 year-old Belgium international believes money is dulling junior players’ ambition.

He stated to Business Insider: “I think the only difference that we have and they have, is we have the real hunger,” Lukaku said.

“Because with soccer now, at the minute, there’s a lot of money involved at a young age. Money that you can earn in the pros, you can earn it already at 12, 13 [years old].

“So it takes the hunger away from you.”
