West Brom Signing Lukaku : I Wasted My Time At Chelsea!

Romelu Lukaku who recently completed his loan move to West Bromwich Albion has taken aim at parent club Chelsea.

The 19-year-old Belgium international striker, who cost the Blues £18million, told the Daily Star that he feels last season was a complete waste of time.

“I couldn’t see myself staying at Chelsea. I sacrificed a year of my career with them and didn’t want to put up with it any more,” Lukaku said.

“I decided in March I wanted to go out on loan, and told my agent to find me a club. I am relieved to have found a solution.

“On the first day of pre-season I told the manager I wanted to leave.

“Roberto Di Matteo told me I ought to think about Chelsea as there weren’t going to be many other strikers this season, but this is the time for me to think about myself.

“I got sick of watching the others from the bench. I just played 12 games and when I was playing well, they would take me off.

“I lost my hunger for the game over the past year. I won’t beat about the bush – my season at Chelsea went very badly.

“As regards getting minutes on the pitch, I wasted my time.

“Last season I was in the reserves alongside a young lad who’d barely turned 15 and I asked myself what I was doing there.”
