Romelu Lukaku determined to prove Mourinho wrong

Published Add your comment

Romelu Lukaku is keen to show Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho than he made a mistake by allowing him to join Everton on loan for the season.

The 20-year-old, who arrived at Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht in 2011, has enjoyed a fine start to his Everton spell, scoring four goals in his first three appearances for the Toffees.

Lukaku was tipped to become Chelsea's first-choice striker after a fine loan spell at West Brom, where he scored an impressive 17 goals in 35 appearances.

But he was allowed to leave for the season shortly after he missed the decisive penalty in the UEFA Super Cup against Bayern Munich.

"I can not do much," Lukaku told Dutch football magazine Elf Voetbal. "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 I think people will say that I'm a good player,"

"Everyone has their own opinion. I can only prove the opposite."

The Belgium international, who is currently on international duty with the Red Devils, now has his sights set on firing Everton up the Premier League table and scoring more goals than Chelsea's other three strikers Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba.

"I hope Everton can end up higher than Chelsea and [I] score more," Lukaku added. "We will see at the end of the season who made ​​the best choice."
