Romelu Lukaku has been heavily criticised online after a poor performance for Inter Milan in the Champions League final.
Man City won the final 1-0 thanks to an excellent goal from Rodri, completing a treble for Pep Guardiola’s side after they also won the Premier League and FA Cup.
The striker, who is on loan from Chelsea, replaced Edin Dzeko and looked a threat at times, but dragged a shot well wide late on when he would have been better off passing in front of goal.
One fan felt Lukaku should have scored ‘two or three times’ after also heading a ball goalwards that was blocked at close range.
Inter had been expected to try and extend the Belgium international’s stay at the San Siro after he scored 77 goals for the club across two spells, but fans seem less keen after Saturday’s performance.

Rodri scored the only goal of the game with a classy strike, but later revealed feeling he played ‘s***’ in the first half.
Fans did not hold back in their criticism of the Belgian striker on Twitter
Other supporters felt the Belgium international was a ‘finished baller’, and that his late miss had ended their hopes of a fourth European Cup.
City’s victory means they have now matched their arch-rivals Man United in winning the three biggest trophies in one season.
It also means Manchester is just the second history in Europe, after Milan, to boast two Champions League winning clubs.
Despite bagging an emphatic winner after the break, Rodri felt he played ‘s***’ in the first half and begged the manager to stay on.
It ended up being an excellent night for the Spaniard, although his teammate Kevin De Bruyne had less of an impact after being subbed off with an injury in the first half.
