Romelu Lukaku has come out to give his honest opinion concerning Antonio Conte and Thomas Tuchel clash of words.
The Belgian has took the side of his former manager at Inter Milan on this issue which could be a worry for Thomas Tuchel going forward.
Romelu Lukaku has agreed with Antonio Conte’s view on how to get the best out of him with the current Chelsea squad filled with talents.
The Belgian is currently struggling to get goals for the Blues after scoring four in all competitions so far this season since making his move back to England.
His perfect start to Premier League return was cut short as he is now yet to score in five games played so far for Chelsea.
This has already got the fans talking and others making their voice heard on what Thomas Tuchel should be doing to get the best out of Romelu Lukaku.
Here Is What Antonio Conte Said;
“I don’t think Chelsea have quite figured out how to use him yet,”
“He is a very specific striker. Bringing Lukaku into the box, he is dangerous.
However, when he starts from midfield, he is incredibly quick.
“It is very difficult to find a player who is both a target man but can also run from midfield.”
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was quick to reply to Antonio Conte words by saying.
“He was obviously not on the telly after the Tottenham game.
“I don’t feel offended, he has every right. He is in the TV studio. I even saw it while I was showering before the match in the hotel.
“I saw him talking about us and I saw all the pictures between Romelu and our players from the Tottenham game.
“They were talking about the link-up play from Romelu, and how strong he is and how much he scored so they were praising him.
“I can see it but it is not a Romelu Lukaku problem.”
The Belgian International himself has some words to say as he weighed in on the conversation.
Romelu Lukaku Had This To Say In Support Of Antonio Conte;
“The way I’m built, I’m quite big, everybody thinks I’m a sort of target man just holding up the ball and being a goal poacher,” he told UEFA.com.
“But I’ve never played that way and I hate it. My biggest strength is that I’m dangerous when I’m facing towards the goal, because that’s when I rarely make wrong choices.
“After I pass the ball, I know where I have to position myself in the box.
I can do a bit of everything and in some games when I know there is a lot of space behind the defence, I play differently.
“The reason I’m so productive in front of goal is because I can do a bit of everything.”
Romelu Lukaku is currently with Belgium national team and will be looking to make a comeback when the League resumes as Chelsea go up against Brentford.
