Clarke who managed Lukaku during his spell at West Brom said the Manchester United striker apologized to him after the game.

“I just had a big cuddle with him in the tunnel. He apologised for scoring,” said Clarke according to a report by Daily Mail.

He said he had talked with Lukaku and that the striker was interested in being better at what he does. “I just spoke to him in the corridor and he wants to keep getting better and better.”
