Luke Shaw has taken a pop at Romelu Lukaku after he was knocked out of the Champions League.

United sold Lukaku back in August after a poor season last year where he netted just 12 Premier League goals.

Lukaku joined Inter and was drawn into a tough Champions League group with Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.

He was happy to be in the competition, posting a short message a couple of months back which several United fans interpreted as a dig, with United down in the Europa League.

Inter were eliminated tonight and United star Luke Shaw showed no remorse in taking a pop at his former teammate, welcoming him back to the Europa League.

A friendly dig or bad blood?

Lukaku will be feeling pretty down right now, and likely will not be in the mood for jokes after his elimination.

 

In that respect as a fellow sportsman, Shaw’s dig is in poor taste.

But from a United perspective, it’s pretty funny to see Shaw taking a pop.

It’s unclear whether it’s intended as a friendly dig or if there is bad blood between the two.

The Standard reported Shaw was reportedly very unhappy after Lukaku posted some pre-season data on his social media page in the summer which showed him to be among the club’s slowest players in that particular session.

United v Inter in the Europa League? It suddenly feels inevitable…
