“It has been a good trip so far, I have learned a lot and a lot of progress. I only considered myself a Premier League player from my first goal, “ he said.
Since the Belgian striker scored his first goal, he has not stopped shaking the net, to the point of doing better than his idol Didier Drogba, which took longer to reach 100 goals. “Drogba has been part of my evolution since the very first day. I talk to him almost every day, even now, “ he said.
It must be said that since he played in the Premier League, Lukaku has already scored 104 goals with 30 games less than Drogba. However the Ivorian won four championship titles in England and yet he won none. This explains a little more why Drogba has had a strong influence in his career. Despite this, Drogba should congratulate and appreciate this Lukaku performance. A few days before Romelu Lukaku had already paid a vibrant tribute to Didier Drogba.
“With Didier Drogba, we talk every day. It’s been part of the ‘process’ since I started in the Premier League. Even though we have not been in the same locker room for years, he is still part of my family. At the World Cup, he was almost always at the hotel. You imagine ? I had Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba around me to tell me what was right or wrong in my game. They know that I accept their criticism because I want to have the same career as them.
