Starting striker for Manchester United, Romelu Lukaku is one of the most entertaining footballers in the world for all of the wrong reasons. He is best known for his disastrous first touch, poorly executed dribble moves and lackluster finishing. He makes mistakes on the pitch often but in his most recent Premiere League match against Southampton he managed to pull off a move we have never seen before.
Lukaku tries to control the ball and ends up taking a tumble instead. His lack of a first touch forces him to trip over the ball and he ends up injuring himself. He was subbed off 2 minutes after his self inflicted injury and the fans at Old Trafford were not pleased. This is not the only error he has made this season. He has a very unique set of skills that cannot be obtained by conventional means. Here are some clips of his masterful move set.
