Here is the problem Lukaku has at Chelsea; Mikel Obi has opened up to say what he knows is the problem the Belgian is having at Chelsea owing to the fact that he has played a big deal for the club too.
The former Nigerian Chelsea Midfielder has opened up about the issues Lukaku might be having at Chelsea which made him believe he is a better striker at Italy than he is at Chelsea right now.
It could be considered that his move to Chelsea is a flop as he has failed to impress following his record fee signing £98million return to the EPL.
Lukaku has since the end of last season tried to get back to Inter Milan to redeem his name but the move is not going quite as planned for him and that could be for one of these two reasons;
- Inter may not want him back
- His price is too high
Speaking about Lukaku difficulties in England, Mikel said;
“The league is totally different. The English league is too strong, too powerful, too fast, whereas the Italian league is too slow.
“The English league has too much quality. The pace of English football is way too much for the Italian league.
“In the Italian league you can play until you’re 40 years old, but in the English league you’re putting in way more work.”
