Manchester United fans sing Romelu Lukaku penis song

Manchester United fans are heard singing the controversial chant involving Romelu Lukaku at Southampton.

Manchester United fans have been heard singing the controversial chant involving Romelu Lukaku during their side's game at Southampton this afternoon.

Anti-discrimination group Kick It Out this week claimed that the chant, which suggests that Lukaku has "a 24-inch penis", is "offensive and discriminatory" for using the ethnic stereotype that black men have large penises.

The 'MUFC Songs and Chants' supporter group declared that they would continue singing the chant unless ordered to stop, reasoning that it is "not a negative chant", but then Lukaku himself called upon fans to "move on".

The chant was once again heard from the away end at St Mary's this afternoon, however, after Lukaku opened the scoring for his side with 20 minutes played.

The song was followed up by the chant: "We're Man United, we'll sing what we want."
