Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has admitted that his main aim for the season is to prove Jose Mourinho wrong by outscoring his strikers at the club.
Mourinho decided to loan-out the Belgium international this season, despite his impressive campaign last year with West Bromwich Albion, and now at Everton, he is already looking more fierce than the strikers left at Stamford Bridge.
In just three games for The Toffees, Lukaku has netted four times, which is a much better ratio than the likes of Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o, all the strikers that are left with Mourinho.
Lukaku believes this is the season he can prove Mourinho wrong.
“The coach decides and, as a player, you have to respect that.
“I chose to leave and it’s up to me to prove the coach wrong.
“The only thing I can do is play well and score a lot, and then I think people will say that I’m a good player.
“I want to score more goals than the strikers of Chelsea. We will see at the end of the season who made the best choice.”
