Gary Neville gives brutal Romelu Lukaku assessment after his Manchester United exit

Gary Neville offers brutal assessment of Romelu Lukaku after his transfer to Inter

Gary Neville has responded to Romelu Lukaku's response to the Englishman's previous criticisms, with Neville previously suggesting that the Beglian was overweight and extremely unprofessional at United.

Ever since Lukaku was linked with Inter and shifting his interest away from United, Neville has been keen to criticise the forward, particularly labeling him as "unprofessional".

This led to Lukaku responding, saying "He can talk about my fitness but he should never say anything about my professionalism, that I don't work hard enough. That is something he cannot say. All the coaches I have had say the same thing about me. What did Ole Gunnar Solskjaer say when I was on the training ground? What did he say? That I always work hard and always do my best to try and improve myself. Same with Jose Mourinho and Roberto Martinez. Now Antonio Conte will say it."

After Lukaku responded to Neville's criticisms, the United legend felt the need to make his point clear on Twitter, saying "I'm hearing you. I'm delighted he's left. I won't be happy till everyone single one of them that think they are better and bigger than the club and don't want to be here are gone!"

He went on to readdress his point, adding that "Nothing at all about his nationality or him not being a good player. He will always score goals."

Lukaku got his Inter career off to a good start, scoring a goal in their 4-0 battering of Lecce on Monday.

However, Neville was then asked whether he would rather have Lukaku in the United team of not, saying that he was indifferent.

Neville said that "I don't care about 25/10/5 [goals] at the moment. We just need players that want to play for the club. Strip it back to that and then build a team... That's what I want. It will take some time to do so though so patience will be needed."
