Geremi speaks on Lukaku situation

Chelsea icon Geremi has suggested that the previous furore surrounding Romelu Lukaku was ‘bizarre’.

Speaking on behalf of Genting Casino, he said: “I read about the Lukaku situation on the news and it is a bit bizarre to me. When you look at his attitude on the pitch, you think ‘maybe this is not true’ or ‘maybe it was not what it seemed’. He goes over to clap the fans immediately post the final whistle, he fights on the pitch, gives 100%.

“That performance against Tottenham was not a player who wants to leave Chelsea. Sometimes what the newspapers say depends on the interpretation. If he is not happy, why would he fight – he can’t lie to himself. For the club, it’s not good to keep a player with no motivation. Maybe there was a misunderstanding around what he actually said. Lukaku is one of the best in the world, so for Chelsea to lose him would be a big blow. But I don’t think there is a problem.”
