Troubled since his arrival at Chelsea last summer, center forward Romelu Lukaku had to face Real Madrid (1-3) in the Champions League on Wednesday. With two beautiful missed opportunities after coming on in the 64th minute, the Belgian international was no match for that.
Romelu Lukaku no longer scores…
Romelu Lukaku can’t get his head out of the water. The center forward, who was recruited to Inter Milan for €113 million last summer, is having a particularly difficult season under Chelsea’s colors.
Author of 7 goals in 26 Premier League and Champions League games, the Belgium international has not scored in either competition since December 29, and has even lost basic status.
Lukaku still has gch…
On Wednesday, however, the former Everton player was given a golden opportunity to resuscitate. Against Real Madrid (1-3) in the first leg of the C1, the 28-year-old striker came into the game in the 64th minute in a strong period for his team. Frequently sought after on the crotch of his partners, Lukaku did not seize this opportunity, mainly showing his clumsiness. After a first header was sent into the stands, the Blues striker, alone in the penalty area, lost a huge opportunity with a new header that grazed Thibaut Courtois’ post.
He missed a big chance on Wednesday. He does what the coach gives him. At the moment he doesn’t feel loved. Today he missed a babysitter. It will be on all social networks and everyone will laugh at him. He is a great player, he is going through a difficult time at the momentestimated former defenseman Micah Richards for CBS Sports.
The Belgian cut from Carragher!
Unsurprisingly, Lukaku suffers from the comparison with Karim Benzema, author of a hat-trick and particularly effective with his first two goals. The Red Devil was eliminated by former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher. It doesn’t depend on the coach, but on Lukaku. It’s not about a manager’s love. You spend $115 million on a player to make a difference in these games and he can’t even startthe Englishman complained. Particularly successful at Inter (30 goals and 10 assists in 44 games in all competitions in 2020-2021), the Antwerper seems a mere shadow of himself… In major difficulties, Lukaku would even be favorable a start with interest from the reigning Italian champion . The only way to recover?
