Man United's Jose Mourinho: I don't celebrate, why should Romelu Lukaku?
From ESPN - December 17, 2017

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has explained why Romelu Lukaku refused to celebrate his strike at West Brom.

Lukaku scored his 15th goal of the season in the 2-1 win at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

Jesse Lingard also netted in the first half as United closed the gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City to 11 points after back-to-back wins.

Lukaku did not celebrate, having spent a season on loan at Albion in 2012-13, and Mourinho claimed the Belgium international might have taken his lead from his manager.

He said: "I think two reasons. One: his love for West Bromwich Albion. He was a happy kid here, they help him to feel loved, they made him feel at home. It was here he exploded in the Premier League.

"Probably the second thing is he looks at me and I do not celebrate too and he says, 'If he does not celebrate, why should I celebrate?'
