Manchester United forward, Romelu Lukaku, has landed himself in trouble with fans after launching his own cologne brand.
Lukaku partnered with Abercrombie and Fitch to release the aftershave fragrance.
He took to his Twitter account to share the arguably exciting news with fans - but some were less impressed as they poked fun on the Belgian.
"Excited to share that starting today, you can visit an Abercrombie store in London, Manchester, or Brussels to get my limited edition bottle of Fierce cologne before anyone else. Very limited quantities," he posted.
The announcement came just two days after his disappointing display during United's 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford, and therefore drawing the ire of some United fans.
One hilariously suggested the fragrance could only last 20 minutes before fading, alluding to Lukaku's sporadic performances during matches.
@MPraiz thought the timing was completely off.
@Ibion joked: "Lukaku is releasing a new fragrance. It will be called “Missed”, and will last for just 20 minutes."
@TimKellyRSA thought the fragrance was completely offside, in apparent reference to the many offside calls Lukaku received during the Chelsea clash.
Meanwhile, the former Everton frontman has notched 15 goals this season, but his inconsistencies during big matches has left fans frustrated.
His future at Old Trafford also been thrown under sharp speculation after the forward's agent admitting he could leave United in the summer.
