Watford signed Dodi Lukebakio in January and in the summer loaned him to German club Fortuna Düsseldorf for one season.
The forward has so far impressed for the Bundesliga newcomers, scoring six goals in 12 league appearances that includes seven starts.
One of his goals came in his side’s 3-1 defeat to Werder Bremen in the last tie and he converted from the spot before the break. His goal saw Fortuna equalise and the 21-year-old took the ball after netting the goal and this resulted in a scuffle with the opposition players.
In the second half, Lukebakio was accused of trying to cheat the referee, by lying down injured and then getting up to sprint when he realised the official was paying no attention.
Fortuna manager Friedhelm Funkel was unhappy with his attacker’s behaviour and slammed the Belgian for his antics during the game against Werder Bermen.
“This has nothing to do with football. He provokes opponents, fans and referees. I will not let it go. He’s a young player who is much over-hyped and still has a lot to learn, including how to behave in a different way on the pitch,” Funkel explained, as quoted by RP Online.
The manager also said his player “needs to be more receptive to criticism” and it’s explained that if the Watford rising star doesn’t listen then he’s set for a spell on the bench or in the stands.
