Mourinho: "Lukaku Should Sign Boot Contract"

Following Manchester United's 4-2 win over Watford on Tuesday night, Red Devils manager José Mourinho left some interesting remarks about out-of-form striker Romelu Lukaku and this choice of footwear in particular.

"He needs a big contract with boots," Mourinho said after the victory. "He needs a brand to give him the right boots. He finished the deal. He is waiting for the right offer. He didn't have a contract with any brand, that is why he is playing in black boots, he needs the right boots."

Lukaku, who used to be with Nike but has been switching between different brands and models for quite some time now, laced up in blacked-out Nike Hypervenom Phantom III GX boots against Watford, having mostly worn Adidas X 16 Leather boots before that.



"Jokes apart he works amazingly well for the team and I will never, never blame a player like him for the easy chance that he missed," Mourinho added.
