Romelu Lukaku will always be a Chelsea fan

Published 1 Comments

Belgium international Romelu Lukaku has admitted that he will always love Chelsea despite being sold by the club in 2014.

Lukaku, who had been at Stamford Bridge since he was 18, was tipped to be the next Didier Drogba after arriving in a £17m deal from Anderlecht in 2013.

But the powerful forward spent two seasons on loan to West Brom and Everton before eventually being sold to the Toffees in 2014 after failing to impress Jose Mourinho.

Lukaku had impressed whilst on loan at both the Hawthorns and Goodison Park scoring 32 goals in just 66 Premier League games across two season, enabling Chelsea to make a healthy profit on his sale.

His loan spell success at Everton and West Brom left many Chelsea fans wondering why Mourinho allowed him to leave the club when their strikers, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o were flattering to deceive.

It is believed Mourinho and Lukaku had quite the falling out, eventually leading to his premature exit from west London.

But despite starting just one Premier League game for the Blues, Lukaku says he will retain a place in his heart for the club.

Lukaku told Sport Voetbal: "I will always be a fan of that club (Chelsea). It's not because I left in the wrong circumstances, that feeling disappears. But a footballer wants to play."
