A former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has told the club’s striker, Romelu Lukaku to keep things simple.
Berbatov saw Lukaku struggle again in United Champions League 1-0 loss to Juventus on Tuesday.
Lukaku has not scored for United in his last eight games, with his last goal coming against Watford on September 15.
Berbatov said Lukaku may be over-complicating things as he looks to rediscover his form.
“He (Lukaku) wants to impress so badly that he is doing too much, and not doing the simple things like getting into the box,” Berbatov told Betfair.
“He is probably over complicating things; you don’t want to see him popping up at left-back as he did on Tuesday.
“There has been a lot of criticism for Romelu Lukaku since the game but you’ll never catch me having a go at a fellow striker. I know how difficult it is.
“I remember when I was on a bad run at United when I hadn’t scored for seven or eight games, but then scored five in one game! It happens to everyone.
“I know he’s not scored for eight games, but I don’t think the criticism of Lukaku is fair. As Jose Mourinho said, he’s working very hard for the team, but this might actually be working against the striker.”
