Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba could have won Tuesday’s Super Cup for Manchester United.
Manchester United aren’t on the same level as a club like Real Madrid and it showed during Tuesday’s 2-1 UEFA Super Cup.
What was really startling was how both Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba each missed a tap-in that would have helped United win the match.
Of course some fans couldn’t help but rip Lukaku and Pogba on Twitter by saying both were a waste of money for Manchester United.

I will say this about both Lukaku and Pogba, Manchester United will only go as far as they take them. It’s on them to show up and play world class football. And they failed to do so on Tuesday night.
Let’s be honest, if Zlatan Ibrahimovic was playing, he wouldn’t have missed a sitter against Real Madrid.
I like Lukaku and Pogba, but United need Ibrahimovic to come back in either December of January.
I’m not sure Lukaku is mature enough to handle a big European stage. This was only one game and he will continue to be tested.
