Romelu Lukaku admits he’s not the finished product at Manchester United after being compared with Didier Drogba, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski.
Drogba played at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho, leading the line as the Portuguese boss claimed a numerous amount of trophies, and he has now spent £75m this summer on Lukaku, who is set to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford.
The Belgian crossed paths with Drogba at Stamford Bridge, however, after being compared with his former team-mate, Lukaku has come out to claim
“Not really. I’m different,” he said.
“Drogba is more of a hold-up player, a target man. I prefer to have ball to feet and run in behind. We are totally different.
“We might have physical similarities but we’re totally different players. “I’m Romelu Lukaku, I want to create my own history.
“I’m at United, he was at Chelsea. I’m 24, so can’t say I’m the complete package. I can’t say I’m in my prime.
“There is a lot of work to be done and I’m delighted that there is still work to be done. That means I can become even better than I am.
“I’m far from the level of Ronaldo and Lewandowski. That’s the level I want to aim for.
“How do I reach that level? Keep improving. There is always room to improve.”
He’s set to be a terrific player at United and hopes are once he’s playing with a better team, that creates more chances, we’ll see the best out of him.
Lukaku is still only 24 and has an incredible goalscoring record in the Premier League, some more help from Mourinho could help him take his career to the next level.
