Man Utd striker Lukaku: Adriano my idol

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku admits growing up idolising Brazilian centre-forward Adriano.

Lukaku insists that former Inter Milan striker Adriano applied a similar style of play - and he wanted to follow suit.

"I have a good relationship with people from Brazil," he told ESPN Brazil

"And I really like Brazilian players. When I was little, Adriano was my great idol. Because when I was little, I had the same qualities as him.

"Very strong, shooting with the left was the same. I hope he's going to play again because he's a good player.

"For me he's an idol. I like him a lot."
