‘When you mature, it’s not only about yourself anymore,’ the 26-year-old striker told Henry during a chat on Instagram Live.

‘Scoring is my drug, that’s what I live on. But the older you get, you have to use your intelligence, I am a student of the game.

‘I think if I want to help my team, I have to be capable to give assists.

‘It cannot just be me (scoring), it has to be the guy next to you. Everyone has to feel important.

‘If I cannot shoot myself, I will always look for the pass.’

Lukaku’s stint at Old Trafford lasted just two seasons as he struggled with inconsistent form throughout his time at the club.

His electric start to Italy came to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic and it remains unclear when the Serie A will return. 

He said: ‘It’s just difficult, I miss the competitiveness, the training sessions and I miss the game, playing in front of the fans.

‘That is the most difficult thing and the thing I miss the most.’
