Lukaku issues quick response after Pogba bust-up rumors emerge

March 5, 2019 By Ali M.
The Belgian striker took to Twitter in what appeared to be a response to claims he fought with the Frenchman after the Southampton win.

Ahead of their crucial clash with PSG, rumors emerged claiming Man United buddies Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba had a bust-up. However, the Belgian attacker appears to have denied those allegations with a recent social media post.

According to the Sun, this incident occurred shortly after the Red Devils' 3-2 win over Southampton. While the club fought back from a goal down to earn all three points, Lukaku was reportedly left upset with one incident.

The former Everton man, who had come under heavy criticism for the majority of this season, has enjoyed a resurgence under Solskjaer and bagged a brace in the weekend victory. It was his second consecutive two-goal haul but the 25-year-old was allegedly livid at being denied a chance of completing his hat-trick.

The Premier League giant was awarded a penalty later on in the game but Pogba refused to hand over the spot kick to his buddy, being the team's first-choice taker. Solskjaer had to step in to calm things down after the two went at each other over the penalty, which the Frenchman missed, the British tabloid writes.

Lukuku now looks to have refuted those claims with a tweet on Tuesday. While the forward made no mention of the report or article directly, his caption seems to be an attack on the media over fabricating yet another story.

"When the hate don’t work they start telling lies," the Man United striker wrote on Twitter in what appears to be a direct reference to the rumor.

The Belgian and Frenchman are good friends and while regular confrontations between team-mates are inevitable, it's hard to believe their friendship will take a huge hit from that penalty incident.

While the World Cup winner is suspended for Tuesday's Champions League fixture, Romelu is available to spearhead Solskjaer's attack. The 20-time Premier League champion trails 2-0 and will be without as many as 10 first-team players, the Belgian has rediscovered his form and will hope to spark a comeback in Paris.
