“The first two training sessions, that intensity was so high that the first two or three days [at Chelsea] I had a bit of a scare,” Romelu Lukaku said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“But two days before the match [v Arsenal] we had a training session where I scored two goals and I thought ‘yes’.
“The team is looking good, the coach is looking good, I love the system that we play because it’s the same system as here [with Belgium], only the emphasis is different.
“For me, it’s fantastic because I play in a team that dominates.”
This is an interesting comparison as Romelu Lukaku was coached by Antonio Conte last two seasons.
The Italian is known for his demanding training sessions so if Lukaku was indeed scared after a couple of days with Tuchel, we can’t even imagine how intensive it is!
However, Romelu appears to have quickly adapted to it, as he showed in his second debut for the Blues, scoring against Arsenal and putting in a magnificent performance.
