Soccer – Jose offers Lukaku support

Out-of-form Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku was backed by boss Jose Mourinho following the 1-0 home Champions League defeat to Juventus. A Paulo Dybala goal ensured that Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a winning return to Old Trafford, while Lukaku cut a frustrated figure as he extended his goalless run for United to eight games. However, Mourinho remains confident that the Belgium frontman will find form in the near future, while admitting that his player is currently low on confidence. He told reporters: "(I have) a complete understanding that the player is a fantastic professional that wants to give everything. "Not just with the goals he is not scoring, but also in his confidence, in his movement, his touch. He is not linking the game well with the team. "Romelu is a hard-working guy and a good professional. One day the goals will arrive and the confidence will be back." Lukaku is currently 16/1 with bet365 to be the leading goalscorer in the Premier League this season.
