LUK AFTER ME ..NOT IBRA; PS75m star Rom loses his cool; LUK, I'M THE MAIN MAN NOW; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: DAVID ANDERSON

ROMELU LUKAKU is unhappy at Manchester United because he feels undermined by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Lukaku (right) has not celebrated his last two United goals and his discontent with the Swedish star is a factor. The Belgian assumed Ibrahimovic's mantle as United's main striker when he joined for PS75million from Everton last summer. But he believes Ibrahimovic refuses to accept his status as United's No9 since the Swede returned from a knee injury last month.

Lukaku, 24, also complains Ibra has tried to take over his central role when he has come on, telling him to move out wide. The former Everton star is also disgruntled that Jose Mourinho has not pulled up Ibra, famous for his big ego.

Meanwhile, Eduardo Berizzo (right) will not be facing United in the Champions League last 16 after the Sevilla head coach lost his job yesterday - almost a month after undergoing surgery for prostate cancer.

The club website said he had been dismissed "due to the team's bad run".

Sevilla are without a win in three, having suffered a 5-0 thrashing at Real Madrid earlier this month, although Ernesto Marcucci was in charge for that fixture at the Bernabeu.
