“Yes, of course [I have spoken with our manager]! The conversation was really clear from him, that he wants me to be a presence and a leader in the team. I have to just use all my abilities to make sure I can help the team as much as possible,” Romelu Lukaku told Chelseafc.com
“My role will depend on what the game plan is and what the boss wants me to do. If he wants me to be a focal point or if he wants me to attack the spaces in behind, I can do it. The two years in Italy helped me master all the facets of the game for a striker and now I’m ready.
“I like the system that we play and I’m very flexible. I can play as a two or by myself and I’m used to the system because it’s what we play with the Belgian national team so I don’t need much time to adapt. It’s just knowing the strengths of my teammates in important positions and knowing what we do off the ball, then I can do the rest.”
The striker added: “I’ve seen Hakim Ziyech so we had a little chat and I’ve been added to the WhatsApp group but I’m waiting to see the rest of the players tomorrow.”
The Belgian attacker will most likely make his debut for the club (once again) against Arsenal next weekend.
At the moment, it seems like Lukaku is raring to go and he will give it his all as he wants to bring titles to the club he grew up loving – we can’t wait to see him on the field!
