Former Manchester United defender Gay Neville has backed the club for selling Romelu Lukaku despite now having just three strikers.

The 26-year-old Belgian left Old Trafford for Inter Milan last month after two years at the club.

And Neville, who works as a pundit for Sky Sports, replied to a comment on Twitter asking if the Red Devils had made the correct decision in selling a player who had scored 42 goals in 96 matches.

The United legend tweeted: “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!

“Nothing at all about his nationality or him not being a good player. He will always score goals.”

Neville is happy Lukaku has left.

After also allowing Alexis Sanchez to join Inter Milan on loan, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has just Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood as recognised strikers to choose from.

Martial started the season with two goals in his opening two games before suffering an injury in the defeat to Crystal Palace.

Rashford hasn’t netted since an opening day brace against Chelsea and 17-year-old Greenwood has made just eight senior appearances.

Meanwhile, Lukaku moved to the San Siro for a club-record £74million and scored on his Serie A debut against Lecce.
