With the pre-season games now within the horizon, Manchester United have begun their training and their new signing Romelu Lukaku joined them in his first training session for his new found home. However, it got off to an awkward start as he made a poor first touch and Chelsea fans are rolling in the aisles about it.
In a video clip that has surfaced online, Lukaku could be seen being played by one of his team-mates and in an attempt to pull off a neat trick, ends up floundering as his first touch was disappointing. The Belgian seemed to lack his usual composure on the ball and might still be in the hangover of the bacchanalic party he reveled in, in LA just past week.
Having spent as much as £75 million for his services, United have tremendous expectations from the 24-year old, whilst he himself have big boots to fill following the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, the Chelsea fans have already started raising questions, albeit in a very abashed manner.
His blunder has turned into a butt of all jokes for the Blues faithfuls, who were frustrated at watching him ditch his old club in favour of their Manchester rivals.
But after witnessing this video clip of his training session, Chelsea fans can feel fire ignited in their belly as the bitterness has now turned into a consolation for them.

Wenger on Lukaku: "Yes we looked at him, but we want to play attractive football,so a player with a touch like Fred Flintstone was a big no"
