Romelu Lukaku: Thomas Tuchel refusing to give up on striker

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed that he is not willing to give up on misfiring striker Romelu Lukaku. The German feels that he needs a spark to ignite his Chelsea career. Despite signing for £97.5m in the summer, Lukaku has become an understudy to Kai Havertz this season. He has managed just five goals in his 20 appearances this season. Tuchel revealed that it was a matter of pride to help the striker get back to his best.

“It is a pride for me and it should hopefully also be a pride for him – and it is I guess. This is how we feel, we feel things getting personal then if we don’t get it right and I feel it with any player. If we cannot get the best out of a player for the team it feels, personally me I feel it and I don’t want to have that feeling so,” Thomas Tuchel said about Romelu Lukaku. “You never give up on players, you never give in, and I think Romelu is such a competitor that he feels the same and he behaves in the same way.”

“All he needs is that spark,” he added. “He may be would’ve been a natural starter against Crystal Palace given the minutes Kai (Havertz) has played. But after a period of injury, he lacked the fitness for matches. I don’t point the finger at him, it’s just a fact… Romelu should have had a goal against Real Madrid and Crystal Palace, but if he plays we need all that he has.”
