Ronaldo opened his goalscoring account with twogoals for the Red Devils on his return as he andUnited ousted Newcastle in a 4-1 Old Traffordvictory.
“If I had to make a choice of playing Ronaldo orLukaku at centre forward there would be nocontest. It would be Lukaku every time,” Crookssaid.
“Granted Ronaldo is 36. However, there is atouch of irony in the fact that Lukaku used toplay for United and scored some magnificentgoals but was never loved by their fans andcertainly not in the way Ronaldo is.”
“His hold-up play against Liverpool wasimpressive but his ability to run away from theball and trust the pass was outstanding. Lukakuis now the real deal.”
Blues manager Thomas Tuchelweighed in withhis verdict on the Lukaku versus Ronaldo debate.
When asked who will score more goals, Lukakuor Ronald, Tuchel joked: “I couldn’t care less aslong as Lukaku scores for us.”
