Romelu Lukaku says he will ‘never forgive’ ex-Chelsea Manager

dailystar: Romelu Lukaku has explained how he could never forgive Andre Villas-Boas for leaving him out of the Champions League squad at Chelsea.

The Belgian was signed by AVB in the summer he was in charge of the Blues.

After joining as a relative unknown from Anderlecht, Lukaku was resigned to the reserves.

He was also prevented from being a part of the Champions League squad that year.

It has especially stung the now- Inter Milan forward after Chelsea went on to win the trophy in incredible circumstances.

Villas-Boas was sacked after the west London outfit lost 3-1 to Napoli and were staring at defeat.

But a comeback win, followed by astounding victories over Barcelona and Bayern Munich saw them lift the trophy.

And despite being happy for the club, Lukaku has admitted that he will always bear a grudge against Villas-Boas.

“Di Matteo told me that I would stay with the group until after the final,” Lukaku told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“He thought everyone should come along, including the ones who were suspended and the few boys who were not in the Champions League squad.

“I am also grateful to him for that.

“This win is one of the things I’ve always dreamed about.

“You want to celebrate something like that with the team at that time.

“That is nice in itself at the age of nineteen.

“I am happy for the whole club, but there is one man who took a lot from me: the previous trainer (Villas-Boas). I will never forgive him for that.”

Lukaku’s Chelsea career never truly took off and loans to West Brom and Everton followed before signing permanently for the latter.

The Belgium international scored goals for fun on Merseyside and he made the move to Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.

However, after his departure, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy to see him leave last summer in a £75m deal to Inter Milan.

Lukaku is doing well presently. He should just forget the past because those managers that didn’t believe in him back then probably wished they gave him enough playing time, especially Jose Mourinho.

Every player bought anticipates that he/she will get to play, buying a player and not allowing them to show case is not good, Lukaku has got every right to be mad, I don’t blame him .

For me in as much as the coach then treated him very badly, he should just try and forget it, the coach was discharged of his managerial duty. So he should just try and let go it possibly forgiving him

The coach saw at that time that he was not fit to be in the UCL squad. He may have developed later, but come to talk of it, he didn’t perform well when he played for CFC
