Kevin Mirallas trolls Man United for signing Romelu Lukaku
Kevin Mirallas has told Romelu Lukaku that Everton are a better club than Manchester United and believes the Belgian’s goals can be replaced by Wayne Rooney, Sandro and Davy Klaassen.
Everton are preparing for their first season without the Belgian after agreeing to sell him to United for £75 million earlier this month.
Lukaku scored 71 goals in 133 appearances during his four seasons at Goodison Park and while Mirallas recognises the importance of the striker’s contribution, the Belgian winger believes the 24-year-old is not irreplaceable.
‘Everyone knows Romelu scored a lot of goals for us,’ Mirallas told the Daily Mail.
‘He was so important in the last four seasons. But we’ve added a lot of players who have the possibility to score 10 or 15 goals.
‘If five or six players score 10 goals, that is better than one Romelu.
‘That is important. He has gone to United; that is life. I think Everton is better.
‘It is always good when you play with good players – and Wayne is fantastic.
‘Everyone knows him. He came back here because he wants to help Everton.
‘It was the best move for him, for his family, for everyone.’
