Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is seeking legal advice after Everton’s owner claimed he left Goodison Park because of voodoo.
Everton’s owner, Farhad Moshiri, claimed the Romelu Lukaku left the club because he received a voodoo message. Supposedly that message came during a pilgrimage to Africa, but Romelu Lukaku and his representatives have staunchly refuted these claims. The BBC reports Lukaku is now seeking out any legal process that can be taken against Moshiri.
People talk, that’s a reality of this world. Perhaps Moshiri is using this to disguise the fact he simply couldn’t do enough to keep Lukaku. Or maybe he’s upset himself and is taking this opportunity to hit back at Lukaku after he spurned them. Who knows?
Regardless, Lukaku claims his decision had nothing to do with any sort of voodoo. He’s Catholic and distances himself from those beliefs. Speaking of faith, Lukaku clearly lacked faith in the direction Everton are heading. It wasn’t a financial issue, as Everton were matching any offers made for the striker.
Despite efforts to keep their star, he chose to make the move to Manchester United to play on the biggest of stages. His performances have been up and down for the Red Devils, but he’s been a reliable goalscorer for the most part.
The Belgian forward has 16 goals in all competitions so far this season, but missed part of the festive Premier League fixtures after picking up a head injury in the first half of United’s draw with Southampton on Dec. 30.
He returned to the squad for United’s third round FA Cup tie against Derby on Friday, scoring once and adding an assist after coming on as a substitute. That will be a big boost as the Red Devils seek to make a deep run in that tournament and the Champions League.
