Roberto Martinez says Romelu Lukaku has transformed into a superstar

Roberto Martinez says Romelu Lukaku has transformed into a superstar”

Marouane Fellaini was forced off after 29 minutes in Belgium's WCQ clash at Bosnia-Herzegovina with an apparent knee injury.

The striker was left out of Belgium's 4-3 win over Bosnia on Saturday as a precaution.

Belgium national team boss Roberto Martinez has said that Romelu Lukaku has transformed into a superstar striker following his move from Everton to Manchester United during the summer. Martinez has recently heaped praise on the 24-year-old, who has excelled with United this season.

'Romelu Lukaku is fit, ' said the Belgium boss.

Belgium have already booked a place at next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. 'We are in touch with Man United's medical team.

Mourinho already lost one Belgian worldwide to injury after Marouane Fellaini was ruled out for two weeks with a knee ligament strain he picked up against Bosnia.

The news may not be well received by his club, with Belgium having already secured qualification for next year's tournament and United making the short trip to rivals Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime. Paul Pogba is already sidelined with a hamstring injury.

The Red Devils are already without injured midfielder Paul Pogba as well as Lukaku's worldwide team-mate Marouane Fellaini, who suffered ligament damage during the win in Bosnia.

But after stepping up his recovery over the weekend, Martinez has confirmed he is available for selection against Cyprus.

However, the hope is Lukaku will be fit to face Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday in a match that Mourinho will be under huge pressure to win on two fronts.

Though there has been no confirmation that fans of Manchester United were behind the calls, it seems the only logical explanation for the story.
