Mourinho Satisfied with 'Successful' Lukaku Loan

Mourinho Satisfied with 'Successful' Lukaku Loan

Although Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa is the bookmakers' favourite to lead the line for Chelsea next season, boss Jose Mourinho is apparently pleased with young striker Romelu Lukaku's 'successful' loan spell at Everton.


At the start of the season, back in town from his other successful loan deal in English football at West Brom, the 20-year-old Belgian looked set for his Chelsea first team breakthrough before, seemingly in a hurry, heading out to Everton late in the summer transfer window, where he has scored 14 goals in 30 league games (15 in 32 across all competitions), which is regrettably more than the miserly return put up by Fernando Torres and Demba Ba.


Speaking to the club's official website, the Special One opined:

"Romelu Lukaku had what I call a successful loan.

"Sometimes players go on loan and, at the end of the season, we cannot find one positive reason for that loan but Lukaku played all the time - apart from when he was injured - so he has minutes of experience in the Premier League in a good team, with a good coach and scoring his goals."

"You can say the same thing about Thibaut Courtois [at Atletico]. A successful case of loans are the ones we have to analyse. My final report [on the season, given to the club on Monday] will have in detail these kinds of cases.

"That's my job - to analyse things, have an opinion and make my decisions. I have to work with the club and respect the club's decisions but I know clearly what I would like for next season."




Certainly Jose, they both had successful seasons under their belts and it is damn well your job to analyse these things and give directions as the gaffer.


So is it safe to assume this means the two Belgians will be kicking off their respective Stamford Bridge careers next term, or perhaps this will turn out yet another Mata of some of our special Juans not being good enough for the special Chelsea evolution?


Here at Vital Chelsea we hope it'll be the former scenario.

An olive branch extended 2 d Kraken, he shld grab it as think he 'll start next season as our 1st or 2nd choice striker. In addition he shld learn 2 avoid d media who might try 2 unsettle their r/s given d slightest opportunity & shld also watch his social media interaction with his beloved Instagram. I guess Costa & Lukaku r ok 2 lead d line next season & Mou shld promote Bamford Or d little known Pasalic as their understudy. Cortouis 2 start in goal.

I've always felt Lukaku would've been the deciding factor in Chelsea's push for the title this season, as you guys ultimately came up short due to your lack of confident goalscorers, and relying too much on Eto'o.

Courtios,lukaku,hazard,zooms all need to pre season with cfc then see how they go. Courtiers has been the worlds best go this season. Lukaku has been one of the best goal scoring cf in the epl for the last two seasons and thorgan has been one of the standout players in Belgium. The ages they are all at now 20,21 they should all be either pushing to be in the first team squad or let go. These lomas should only be for players hitting 21 max! I find it pointless to keep sending players out again and again on loan into the mid 20's. 21 the player should be good enough to bring in or sell. If lukaku doesn't do it sell him. Sake goes with thorgan. Think it's time the loan system reflects this mad sets a limit of no player over 21 can go out on loan.will help young players either push on or find a new club and play every week instead of rotting in the top clubs reserves.

If lukaku wants to make a career out of the bridge, he better be ready to to work harder than he currently does at Everton. Make no mistakes.. Mourinho will no stand idleness on the pitch. If he did not stand slothfulness from Hazard, he will definitely not stand it from Lukaku. If we are bringing Lukaku back to partner Costa then we need to get a smallish livewire kind of striker as third striker or promote Islam Feruz or Bamford... I would have loved Borini back but i doubt we can get him or he will be willing to come and be a third striker. That is assuming we offload Torres anyway

lol @fc i agree with you on this one , we haven't really had the luxury of competent scorers so irrespective of whatever he does on the pitch , how he affects the s core board count more right now , we have enough strikers who seem o do everything well but score
