Watford captain Deeney: Man Utd wrong to sell Lukaku

Watford captain Troy Deeney says Manchester United were wrong to sell Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku has impressed this season at Inter Milan.

And Deeney says: “The hit they took on Lukaku is mad, when you think about it.

“They let Lukaku go and then they had to go and get Ighalo. Iggy has hit the ground running there, he will always score goals. But yeah, Lukaku?

“They're both my boys. Look at his goal record. And what's he paid to do? Score goals.

“When he was at Everton, 'Ah, we need someone like him, he'd be great at United' then you get him and it's, 'Ah, his first touch is bad' but he scored like 60 goals, you know? 'Nah, not good enough. His touch isn't good enough.'"
