Milan defender Malick Thiaw gave props to Roma striker Romelu Lukaku for having proven to be a tough opponent over the years.

In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, the German defender was asked about the strongest opponent he’s had to deal with in Serie A and Lukaku was the first name on Thiaw’s mind.

“Without a doubt in my mind I can it’s Lukaku,” answered Thiaw.

“He’s overwhelming. He overpowers you. His legs are twice as big as mine and he always gives you problems.”
