Cape Town - Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku has criticised Manchester United fans for pinning the club's struggles on Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez or himself.

The 26-year-old ended his two-season stint at Old Trafford on transfer deadline day, joining Inter Milan for a reported Pound 73.75 million deal.

Lukaku came in for some criticism over his two seasons with the Red Devils despite his decent goal record of 42 goals in 96 matches.

In a podcast apparently recorded before he moved to Inter, Lukaku has claimed United supporters always 'had to find the culprit' during his time at Old Trafford.

"They have to find somebody," Lukaku told the LightHarted Podcast. "It is Pogba, it is me or it is Alexis. It's the three of us all the time.

"They have got to find somebody to blame. I put my hand up, like, this year I don't think I was the only one playing bad. A lot of people were playing bad but they had to find the culprit.

"If they want to put the blame on me, you know what, f**k it, do what you gotta do.

"I think the team has so much potential to do some great stuff. There is a lot of talent. But it is not only talent; you really have to build a team."
