Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is no stranger to the immense criticism that he faces by the club's as well as general football fans when it comes to the technical side of his game, especially his first touch.
The 26-year-old Belgian has proven his goalscoring abilities, but fans think that a lot is missing from his overall gameplay, with the major issue bing the condition of his first touch.
And fans have now decided to unofficially turn his name into a verb.
According to fans, here's what Lukaku means as a verb:
"Past tense: Lukaku'd."
Meaning: "1. To lose something under your control; mishandling due to lack of ability and/or concentration.
"E.g., 'I really like this girl, everything is going so well, I pray I don't Lukaku it.'"

past tense: Lukaku'd
1. To lose something under your control; mishandling due to lack of ability and/or concentration.
E.g 'I really like this girl, everything is going so well, I pray I don't Lukaku it.'
Since then, Lukaku's name has also made it into the Urban dictionary.
The Belgian's future at Manchester United still remains uncertain and he is expected to make a move away from Old Trafford this season with Inter Milan interested in his signature.
While speaking to Sport Mediaset last week, Lukaku himself said, "Good that Conte went to Inter, for me, he is the best coach in the world. As for my future, I have already made a decision that I still cannot communicate publicly out of respect for Manchester United with whom I have a contract."
He further stated, "I am a big Serie A fan, those close to me know that I have always wanted to play in the English league and in the Italian one, I love Italy. And then Cristiano Ronaldo arrived, [Maurizio] Sarri will go to Juventus, [Carlo] Ancelotti is at Napoli, it will be an exciting Serie A. The club and my agent will talk about it but I have already made my decision."
While his comments did manage to anger some United fans, a majority of them were pretty pleased after hearing that the Belgian wants to leave their club and move to Italy.
