New Chelsea striker believes he has nothing to prove ahead of his second spell at the Bridge
Romelu Lukaku feels he has nothing to prove in England following a difficult stint with Chelsea and Manchester United in the Premier League.
Chelsea’s new boy Lukaku reveals he is at ease ahead of his second spell at the Stamford Bridge.
The ex-United striker suffered a disappointing seasons during his first stay at the Bridge, but he believes he has nothing to prove in his second coming.
The Blues confirmed earlier this month that the Belgian will rejoin the club after ten years, having agreed a deal to sign him from Inter.
The Belgian is understood to pocket around €12 million in a deal that would see him become the most expensive player in the Premier League history, surpassing United’s Pogba.
Having played a vital role as Inter won it first Scudetto over 10 years, Lukaku belief he has nothing to prove in English football.
Speaking at his introductory press conference at Chelsea, Lukaku said: “I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. The only thing that motivates me is myself. I am a self-motivator and always have been. I’m a Chelsea player and happy to be here now.
“I have experienced success elsewhere and also a different playing style where it’s more technical based and tactical. The Premier League has a bit of everything and the experiences I had a few years ago were great. I loved every minute of it on and off the field but the experiences in Italy made me more complete as a player.
“Now it’s just about what I have learned in Italy. Watching the Premier League over the last few years, the players have got better, the teams have got better and I am ready for the challenge.”
