How Lukaku Can Win Chelsea Supporters - Tuchel

By Ibrahim Taiwo, The Nigerian Voice Sports

Thomas Tuchel has backed Romelu Lukaku to get back on the good books of the Chelsea supporters.

Lukaku, who joined Chelsea from Inter Milan in a big-money move in the summer irked the Chelsea fanbase with his interview when he stated that he was unhappy at the club and revealed that he would like to return to Inter Milan.

He was subsequently dropped for the Premier League clash against Liverpool and he apologised to the club and his teammates.

Tuchel believes he can only get on the good side of the supporters by scoring goals.

Tuchel said on Lukaku: “We will not reinvent his style or the player. He can simply be Romelu and then we are all fine and he will score because this is what he always does. Nothing helps more than goals with strikers.

“There is no talk, no video that can build up the same trust, the same feeling as a goal. It is not important if it is a beautiful goal or just a normal one, they need to put the ball over the line, nothing helps more than that.

“I have no doubt he is in the shape to help us at the moment.”

Chelsea are in action on Wednesday night against Tottenham in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi final.
