Romelu Lukaku found himself back on the Blue bench as his side faced Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-finals.


What did Mario say about Lukaku?

Dutch footballer Mario Melchiot has urged the Belgian player to speak frankly with the Chelsea manager, who believes the striker’s current situation undermines his self-confidence. Lukaku has had a tough time since returning to Stamford Bridge from Inter last summer. The Belgian was dropped to the bench for his side’s 2-0 win against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday and was only featured for the last 13 minutes.

Romelu Lukaku didn’t make much of an impression after the release, however, as he was presented with a great chance just to hit the post. Former Blues fullback Mario Melchiot thinks Romelu should clear the air with coach Thomas Tuchel and says it’s sad to see him struggle. Mario Melchiot said he needed a good conversation with his coach. Understand what his coach wants, because if not, it just kills his own confidence.

According to Mario, after coming back from injury and coming back to the team, Romelu Lukaku hit the post, of course, trying to get the ball into the net, it’s just sad, a player of his size, his ability. Coming in with so much confidence and then going through the moments that Lukaku is going through now, the only thing he can do for himself is to communicate well, to understand what the coach wants, because Mario doesn’t always think that Romelu really understands what the coach wants. he is waiting for him in the system that Thomas wants to play.


A little about Romelu Lukaku

Romelu caused a stir at the end of 2021 when he complained about Thomas’ system in the blues and admitted he wanted to stay at Inter. The Belgian battled an injury in October, then was kept out of action for two weeks after contracting the coronavirus. The player’s playing time has been dwindling lately amid his struggles on the pitch and has scored just 12 times in 37 matches in all competitions. Thomas encouraged him to bounce back like fellow Blues star Timo Werner, who went through his own difficult period at the club.
