Man Utd's embarrassing error over Romelu Lukaku kit

Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United fans in the US face an awkward surprise if they order a new United home shirt with Romelu Lukaku’s surname on the back.

The player had an excellent World Cup as Belgium finished in third place, but that prominence has counted little over on the US section of the club’s store.

Despite his fame and success, the club are offering shirts with his surname spelled as, ‘LAKAKU,’ on the reverse.

United were quick to react to the mistake, which could be seen on the page for the shirt and also for a page which shows Lukaku’s shirts, with the name spelled correctly on two away shirts.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in the US for the International Champions Cup, and drew their first game against Club America in Arizona. Henry Martin scored for the Mexican side before Juan Mata scored a late equaliser.
