Lukaku’s Affirmation

With the ‘new’ age of 28 years, many parties are hopeful that Lukaku can break Ronaldo’s goal record one day. However, the new Chelsea star dismissed these comparisons.

“Never compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo, never,” said Lukaku as quoted by Goal International.

“Cristiano Ronaldo, for me, is in the top three of the best players in the history of football. I wouldn’t rank him from first to third, but he is there,” he added.

After two seasons of competing in the Serie A goalscorers list, now Lukaku and Ronaldo will continue their rivalry to the Premier League. Lukaku feels lucky to be able to feel that way.

“What he has achieved in football today for players of my generation is something extraordinary,” said Lukaku.

“I was lucky enough to play against him in Italy and now he’s back in the Premier League, that’s all good for English football.”
