Lukaku never played for Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
Everton striker Romelu Lukaku admits he has ambitions of playing with Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.
And his performances could possibly earn him a move away from Goodison Park in the near future, with the 22-year-old revealing that there are three managers that he would like to play for. He really is a good footballer.
He told Belgian magazine Le Vif: “Wayne Rooney“. He is good in the air and knows how to beat the defense. He also included Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola in his answer, with the Chelsea chief’s name being his first choice.
He was due to play alongside the former Everton youngster this summer, but was injured in the build-up to the match. We have often played against each other and almost played together in one team during Duncan Ferguson’s Testimonial.
“Unfortunately, I managed to injure myself and had to pull out”.
When asked who Lukaku would like to play under, the 6ft3 striker responded, “Mourinho, Guardiola and Wenger. I will always regret it it!” “Not only due to their achievements: They have won everything”.
It might be a surprise that Lukaku mentions Mourinho in this list, having been sold by the Portuguese after failing to break into the Chelsea team.
That being said, Duncan Ferguson’s testimonial isn’t likely to be the last of its kind, giving the Toffees’ leading man a few hope of one day linking up alongside a former club great in the years to come.
