Romelu Lukaku has so far notched 4 goals in the premier league for his temporary home Everton since going out on-loan at deadline of the summer transfer window. The Belgian is looking to impress his boss Jose Mourinho during his time and claimed to a Belgian TV this week in an interview that he should have kept him at Chelsea.
Lukaku said he asked to go out temporarily to get more opportunities to play than he would had he stayed at Chelsea. And the main message of the interview is that he wants to outscore the strikers at Chelsea and prove that Mourinho made the wrong decision in letting him go out on-loan.
The 20-year-old told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad: “The coach decides and as a player you have to respect that. I chose to leave and it’s up to me to prove the coach wrong. The only thing I can do is play well and score a lot. And then I think people will say that I’m a good player. I want to score more goals than the strikers of Chelsea. We will see at the end of the season who made the best choice.”
Chelsea’s three strikers have just TWO goals between them since the start of this season, both goals coming from Fernando Torres. Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o are yet to find the back of the net this season. But, Mourinho defended his decision to let Lukaku leave by saying it’s much different playing for Chelsea then playing for Everton.
It will be seen how our strikers currently at the club will fare through out the season but, upfront is currently where our problems are in the starting 11. Our strikers are failing to find the back of the net in many occasions and Jose will try to figure if there should be a system change or it’s just a poor displays by the strikers.
But, every one at the club and the fans feel Romelu Lukaku is the future of Chelsea and the true heir to Didier Drogba’s explosive goals at Stamford Bridge. Let’s just hope he does well at Everton better than last season’s stats at West Brom and prove to be a real success.
