Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised striker Romelu Lukaku for his humility and eagerness to develop after the striker scored twice in a 4-1 Champions League win at CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.
Lukaku has netted 10 goals this season following his £75-million move from Everton.
“He’s humble, he wants to learn all the time, he wants to improve all the time,” Mourinho said. “I think the ambition is there.”
He added that Lukaku’s numbers this season were “amazing”, attributing his success to his side’s solid performances.
“It’s a great achievement but it’s only possible with a good team,” Mourinho said.
“And the team is solid, the team is playing well. We start the competitions strong.”
The 24-year old Belgian, who signed a five-year contract with Manchester United in July, had rejected a new deal at Everton in March to reunite with Mourinho, under whom he played at Chelsea.
