Lukaku: 'There was a feeling that Pogba and I were guilty of the fall of United'
- Lukaku feels he was always the scapegoat at United.
- The Belgian told Pogba about his desire to leave Old Trafford in the summer.
- The striker believes he's now being treated more fairly in Italy.
Speaking to The New York Times, the Belgian said: "I took him aside [in the summer] and told him I was done with Manchester United. There was a feeling that Pogba and I were guilty of the fall of Manchester United.
"From the beginning it was a 'Yes, but...'. I scored in the European Super Cup and they said, 'Yes, but he got another one wrong'.
"When I first started out in the Premier League, I scored against West Ham and they said, 'Yeah, but...'. Since then I imagined how it would feel to leave the club. One year at United erases the previous eight."
Lukaku left United for Inter Milan on deadline day in the summer, joining the Serie A side for a fee of £74 million.
The Belgian has established himself as a key player for Antonio Conte's side, scoring 14 goals in 22 games in all competitions.
