The young Belgian international Romelu Lukaku is getting worried that he could lose his place in the Belgium team because he is not playing regular first team football at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgium coach Georges Leekens has basically told the 18 year-old that his place is in jeopardy if he stays on the bench and Lukaku is now very worried. He said: “I will head back to Chelsea with the advice of Leekens in my mind.
“We had a long talk, and his words made me think. He told me I have to play if I want to be selected for the national team in the future. I want to be the number one striker for Belgium, but the problem is, the others are playing for their club sides, while I am not.
“Something has to change. I’ve progressed as a player since I arrived at Chelsea, because I am training with the best players in the world. But I miss the atmosphere in the stadium and the support of the public.”
It seems that he must have spoken to his agent Christophe Henrotay about the problem, and the agent has now confirmed that his client will probably go out on loan next season. He said: “It is clear that, if Romelu’s situation stays the same, we have to search for a solution. Chelsea want to loan him to another Premier League team, preferably one in London, so they can follow his evolution.”
Chelsea paid £18million to Anderlecht to take him to Stamford Bridge and it is criminal that he is not being given a chance to prove himself. Surely he has got to be better than Torres!
