Nemanja Matic believes Lukaku will shine this season

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has no doubts over the goalscoring potential of Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku scored in defeat to Real Madrid in the European Super Cup.

Before he found the net Lukaku had missed an earlier chance, but after the match Matic was confident that the Belgian’s goal would be the first of many for him.

“It’s very important for us that our strikers score goals,” Matic told MUTV.

“It’s very important for confidence.

“As you know he missed a very good chance but this can happen – it’s football. But I am happy for him that he scored a goal after that and I’m sure that he will continue to score goals and that he will score many this season.”
