The Belgian Number One striker Romelu Lukaku sat on the bench and watched his star studded team-mates fail to score for 75 minutes of last night’s game against Finland, but he had to wait for the manager to put him on the pitch before he could score the equaliser himself!
This just emphasised his talent, and to top it off he has reiterated his wish to be moving away from Everton this summer, and he is obviously talking about moving to Arsenal as he clearly says he “wants to win titles” and where else is he going to win them except at the Emirates! In the three seasons Lukaku has been at Goodison Park, Leicester, Man City and Chelsea have won one League title each, Man United have won on FA Cup, but Arsenal have won TWO FA Cups! So who has been the most successful? It is obvious he wants Arsenal!
Anyay, here is what Lukaku said yesterday: “I’m at a point where I have to make a good career choice,” Lukaku is quoted as saying in the Daily Star.
“We have a new investor at Everton and out of courtesy I will listen to what he has to say. But I have my own ideas in mind. I want to win titles.”
“I have had a very good season, but it is time for me to write myself a CV. That is why I play football,”
“I got that trophy-winning mindset from Chelsea.
“People in Belgium don’t see me playing for Everton, but I am respected by fans, managers and experts like Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Thierry Henry.”
Thierry Henry eh? Perhaps our legend has been acting as a broker between Wenger and Lukaku? I certainly hope so!
