“I still believe that he will [score goals]. We need a bit more patience than we all have,” Thomas Tuchel told a press conference about Romelu Lukaku,
“We demand a lot from our strikers in terms of intensity, so there are several reasons why things are maybe like this, and we are on it.
“We want to bring Romelu in better situations, we want to understand him better, it is an ongoing process but we still have trust because he has proved that he is the guy to have the last touch and score goals.”
“Disappointed is not the right word but of course, we thought and for him as well, he wanted to produce the numbers right from the start but we are all humans and we demand a lot defensively from our strikers as well.”
Since completing a record-breaking transfer to Chelsea from Inter Milan last summer, Lukaku has scored 10 goals in 27 games across all competitions.
The tally was bolstered by his exploits at the Club World Cup where Romelu scored in both of Chelsea’s games.
