“I Said From Day One That I Wanted To Go To Chelsea”
Chelsea new-boy Romelu Lukaku has revealed he always had his heart set on a move the Stamford Bridge and is hungry for silverware this season.
The young Belgian has just joined from Anderlecht this week in a fee thought to be around £20million. The 18-year old who has an exciting future ahead of him is looking forward to progressing with the Blues and learning his trade in the Premiership following his dream move. He said:
“It was a good experience to play in Belgium but I wanted to take a big step to join a big club and I said from day one that I wanted to go to Chelsea.
“To be here now is so good, there are guys with a lot of experience at international level and they won everything, but I didn’t, I don’t have the same feeling as them.
“I just want to win something so I am very hungry to start with these guys.”
Chelsea failed to lift any silverware last season but Lukaku was confident that would be rectified this term.
“I understand there is a lot of pressure on the team but with the players that we have, so much experience and so much talent, and with a great boss also, you can see that we can be confident we can make a successful season,” he said.
On his targets for the campaign ahead, he added:
“First of all, I just want to learn and train as much as possible to improve myself and show the coach that when he needs me I am ready.
“Then I hope to make minutes for the team and be helpful for the team, because the team is the most important thing. If you think positively about the team it will be positive for you.”
