Toe Poke Daily: Lukaku leaks shocking United speed test results
With a move to Serie A looking imminent, Paolo Bandini and the ESPN FC panel wonder if Romelu Lukaku is deserving of the criticism he has received at Manchester United.

The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.

Lukaku spills beans on United speed test

Ever wonder who the fastest player on your favourite team is? Well, if you’re a Manchester United supporter, Romelu Lukaku has your back. 

The Belgian striker — linked with a move away from Old Trafford — took to Twitter to silence those who suggest he doesn’t have a proper top gear and posted a video of what looks to be the results of a one-off speed test from a United training session on July 10 along with the words “Lack of pace.”

The tweet, which was quickly deleted, shows Lukaku was the second-fastest player on United in the test with a top speed of 36.25 Km/h, behind only Diogo Dalot‘s 36.43. Point taken, Rom, but we’re much more interested in some of the results a little farther down — and all the way to the bottom of — the list.

First of all, Phil Jones! Not sure many would have pegged the pugnacious defender to crack the top 10 ahead of teammates such as Paul Pogba (was he trying?), Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Eric Bailly.

However, it might be Luke Shaw who’ll be the most remiss that this list saw the light of day. The results show the left-back is the slowest player on this squad with a top speed of 31.03 Km/h, leaving Juan Mata, second from bottom on the list, to gloatingly thank Lukaku for “finally showing the world he’s quicker than Luke Shaw.”

Not to be outdone, Shaw tweeted soon after that he was going only at 70 percent. Whatever the case, sounds like a prime PPV opportunity for Man United TV to settle this particular squabble on the track.
