    Lookman played well, just unfortunate to be guilty of that penalty. But hopefully you keep getting game time, so your class.

    That boy should move away from the Club this summer! Julian keeps playing him off-position and it hurts me to see him struggle in every match. I watched this match against Hertha and the previous against Mainz and they were no different. He struggled all through cuz he’s being played off-position. Lookman is a Winger and not a central Midfielder. Probably because Timo Werner, Nkunku and Sabitzer keeps impressing him(Julian Nagglesman) from the wings so no space for Lookman,that why he keeps playing him off. Please move to a club that favours your role this Summer. Thanks
