Rom's brother and possibly the biggest full back in history. Anyone watched him for Lazio?
Looks like one of those promotional videos where an NFL player tries his hand at football for a day.
Looks incredibly strong for a full-back, very fast and just runs through players with sheer power, but very little end product.
Some other club sign him up quick before Jose gets any bright ideas
Isn't Pogba's brother a defender too?
I reckon he could be the answer to our RW problems.
Yep, CB/LB for St Etienne.
No, he isn't starting for Lazio by the looks of things, why would he be good enough for Manchester United? He came on from the bench against Milan, a beast physically but very little end product.
He doesn't look half bad, reminds me of Shaw in a way
If he had his brothers crossing ability he would be a pretty good fullback
His crossing is actually decent, it's his defensive contributions that have always worried me. There's a reason he rarely plays for Belgium, even though left-back is our weakest position. He wasn't great when called upon at the Euros in 2016, but he was still very young and inexperienced. On the other hand, a spell in Italy can't have done any harm to his defensive ability.
This was a nice moment the other year:
He has two, the other used to play as striker for Crawley Town.
Jose, Jose, sign him up...
He has another brother Mathias who is a forward. Played mostly at a lower level in the UK.
The next Elokobi?
Woeful defensive ability.
Decent player, not good enough for Utd.
Doesn't look very good.
He's pretty decent.
That video was really strange to watch; because you can tell it's Lukaku's brother with the way he runs, dribbles, crosses etc.
I think we got a glimpse of what Lukaku would be like at fullback, and it's not very good.
Runs in the family then
It's a shame him and Pogba's brother aren't very good. it'd be a laugh to have two Pogbas and two Lukakus playing in the same team. The closest we got was 1 neville and two Da Silva twins.
Uh this thread isn't a transfer thread.
Who said he was good enough for us? You are having a conversation with yourself lad
Only time when I saw him play he looked out of his depth. Had no positional awareness. I guess that's changed?
Im guessing that wasnt Rom that scored one and created one vs Chelsea then?
Shitting on Lukaku seems to be his shtick.
Surprised he's not more of a central defender with that body build. Perhaps he could at some point make it in PL and looks technically better than Smalling despite not obviously being great at marking.
I think he's decent from what I've seen. But I can't imagine Lazio not investing in a better left wingback if they qualify to the CL.
Looks gash if those are supposed to be highlights
Doesn’t look great agree. Although it’s depressing in that ‘highlights’ video that he has got more assists there than Shaw has in his whole united career.
It’s really hit home how unproductive Shaw has been since he signed.
I know goals and assists aren’t everything for fullbacks but to have one or two assists and no goals in 4 years is a terrible output for a united fullback.
We really need improve our fullbacks soon.
Defensively as good in the box as Rom is in ours
He played against us (Wales) at the Euros If i recall correctly, and looked garbage. Like, league 1 standard.
One of his slow motion highlights was him going down because his shirt got pulled a bit.
very original isnt it?
Anyone know how Thorgan Hazard is doing these days?
He's 177cm, pretty poor aerially and not great defensively. Having a certain build alone isn't enough to be a CB.
Had a good start to the season with 5 goals and 5 assists in the first 13 league games this season but only picked up 2 goals and 2 assists in the 11 games since. His drop in form has coincided with Monchengladbach's drop in form - they've only won 3 games in their last 11 with 7 losses.
where is he playing now?
