Jose Mourinho will turn Romelu Lukaku into his new Didier Drogba – Jamie Redknapp

Former Liverpool midfielder-turned-pundit Jamie Redknapp believes that Jose Mourinho will seek to groom Romelu Lukaku into the mould of ex-Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.


The Belgium international begun his Premier League career at Stamford Bridge before he spent four seasons with Merseyside club Everton.

Lukaku’s time with the Toffees was always shrouded with doubts over his future with the former Anderlecht graduate admitting his ambition of playing in the Champions League. Both Chelsea and United were interested in his services earlier this summer, but the 24-year-old opted to move to Old Trafford where he would be reunited with Jose Mourinho.

Speaking to The Mail, Redknapp admits that United will play with a direct approach this summer given the height among the players in the squad. He added that the Special One will look to make Lukaku his new Didier Drogba, although he struggles to make an impression with the elite clubs, he said:

“With this battering ram up front, United will be very direct this year. Jose Mourinho will be looking to Lukaku to be his Didier Drogba. There are times when the Belgian plays like a raging bull — but has appeared timid and disinterested at times. Now he must ditch his reputation as a flat-track bully and terrorise every centre back in the League. Lukaku is good friends with Paul Pogba and if they replicate that relationship on the pitch, they can be magnificent.”

However, Lukaku took a different view to the comparison earlier last month where he insisted that he likes to play more with the ball at his feet rather than Drogba’s role of being the target man. Lukaku opened his goalscoring account in the 2-1 European Super Cup loss to Real Madrid, but he should have guided his side to extra time at least after he missed an open chance from six yards out.

Chelsea needs to buy new players

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba believes that Chelsea will have to sign new players if they want to retain their title.


He said that it would be a massive disappointment for the club to have missed out on the signing of a player such as Lukaku, but they will need to find new opportunities.

Didier Drogba believes that the next season will be a tough one and that the different title contenders will be strengthening massively. This is why it is important that the club signs some new players to add depth to their squad especially that this season they will have to participate in the Champions League as well.

The former Chelsea striker said that he does not know what is happening at the club as usually their transfer business is already done at the time of the year.

He believes that the team will need another striker to replace Diego Costa if ever the latter wants to leave the club and that they will need some quality replacement at the back. He said that the club will be losing a leader in John Terry and that they will need another player that can feel the void.

Didier Drogba said that Terry was not only a good player on the pitch but also a great leader off the pitch. He believes that they will need to find another player of this quality if they are to challenge for the title next season and also perform well in the Champions League.

Didier Drogba believes that Conte has the necessary experience to manage this team and that there is no doubt that he will sign quality players before the start of the new season.

Drogba believes that this is an exciting period at Chelsea and that fans should get ready for the new season.

CHELSEA MAY HAVE WON THE PREMIER LEAGUE WITH EVERTON WIN

Premier League leaders Chelsea may have won the title this year with their victory over Everton.


Their resolve to get back in shape has been amazing this year. And this is what makes champions.

Leicester showed this last year despite Spurs and Arsenal chasing them. They kept taking it game after game until it was over for the rest. Chelsea have done the same this year and it seems the victory over the Toffeeshas sealed it.

The strong resolve to make things happen can have a big effect. That is why dressing rooms play so much importance in the game of modern football. When Jose Mourinho arrived at Chelsea the first time, he worked with his players in the background so much that it translated to success in the open. John Terry, Frank Lampard, PetrCech, Didier Drogba and others – there were all motivators of one another.

This time Coach Antonio Conte seems to have reached that point with his team – The point where a strong resolve wins the league far before it ends.

Despite a few stumbles here and there, that resolve helps them return back to the path of greatness. After Chelsea slipped against Crystal Palace at home, many looked up for some drama but Chelsea gave Footy Site a strong response.

Many would have expected Ronald Koeman and his boys to do some magic, afterall they have been decent this season. After Pedro’s long range effort, the team found back that resolve to finish it off. They defeated them commandingly, winning 3-0 and shaming their detractors. With Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and Sunderland left, who can stop Chelsea?
