Romelu Lukaku Trolls PSG After Knocking Them Out Of The Champions League

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku couldn’t resist the opportunity to troll Paris Saint-Germain after helping Manchester United knock them out of the Champions League on Wednesday night. His two goals helped the Red Devils stun the watching world as they reach the quarter finals. Next stop is to find out who they will face in the quarter finals.

United made history by becoming the first side in the competition’s history to progress despite losing the first leg at home 2-0. Lukaku’s brace, which occurred in the first half, kept them in the tie until the dying minutes, when VAR helped award them a penalty in stoppage time after a handball by Presnel Kimpembe, who scored in the first leg. Marcus Rashford kept his cool to power the ball past Gianluigi Buffon, after his error led to Lukaku’s second goal, to send the Premier League side through.

Not content with a place in the last eight and getting a step closer to a first European winners medal, Lukaku took to Instagram after the game to troll the French champions and their fans, paraphrasing a famous saying “Ici c’est Paris” (Here is Paris), captioning a photo of himself replacing Paris with his home city if Brussels.

t was a cheeky way of sticking to the knife in as PSG wake up again to the knowledge that they are still yet to get past the quarter finals of the Champions League under their Qatari ownership, who bought the club in 2011. The pressure is on them to succeed, but their performance lacked the mentality needed to beat a Manchester United side with nothing to lose and brimming with confidence.

Lukaku is also brimming with confidence. After a slow start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he now has six goals in his last three games. Now United’s attention turns back to the Premier League and a trip to Arsenal, which will be crucial in determining whether they finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League next season.
