Romelu Lukaku has insisted that everything is good between him and Jose and has denied that there is a rift between the player and manager. The striker was loaned out by Chelsea quite unexpectedly on deadline day this summer on a season long loan to Everton since then there have been talks of a rift. But Romelu has come out and denied this once and for all. Lukaku is in red hot form this season and is one of the main reasons for the rise of Everton as a POTENTIAL title challenger so far.
Lukaku has said the only reason for his move was to improve on the year he had with West Brom and first team football at Chelsea was hard to come by. he said:
“I’d first said I wanted to stay at Chelsea during the summer, And then I felt I had to leave to play more. It was my goal to do better than last season.”
“I’ve had Jose Mourinho as a coach for two months,” he added. “Something special. He’s building the foundations of an unbeatable machine again. We didn’t have problems.”
“He wanted me to stay and asked me why I wanted to leave. In some interviews my words were twisted, but the truth is that he accepted to let me leave. He did understand what I wanted. That’s what I really appreciate in him.”
Lukaku is adamant that he will return to Chelsea after his loan expires with Everton.
“Am I getting ready for Chelsea next season?,” he asked rhetorically. “Yes, why else would I have signed a contract for five years?
“I will return to Chelsea as one of the best strikers in the Premier League.”
Lukaku aims higher and wants to become on of the best strikers in the world and not just the BPL.
“I still want to become one of the best strikers in the world,” he expressed. “I hope that you can put me in line with [Edinson] Cavani, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Robin] Van Persie, [Luis] Suarez and [Robert] Lewandowski in two years’ time.”
“I analyse them all. I look at their movements. The presence of Ibrahimovic, the left foot of Van Persie, the right foot of Cavani, the movement of Lewandowski and the dribbles of Suarez.”
Lukaku shouldn’t have been loaned out but we can hope that when the striker returns to Chelsea he will be ready to take the league by the scuff of its neck but this time with the club he signed for a couple of years ago.
