The Chelsea striker, Lukaku, insists it is “useless” to make comparisons with him and the greatest men’s international goal scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Belgium and Chelsea striker star, Romelu Lukaku insisted he has a long way to go before he can be compared to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 110th and 111th international goals this week moving him two clear of Iran legend Ali Daei in the all-time men’s scoring charts.

At age 28, the Belgium and Chelsea star, Lukaku netted 66 times for Belgium, giving him an outside chance of eventually catching Ronaldo. Meanwhile, 49 of his International goals came in his last 47 appearances with 2014 being his most prolific calendar year as he netted 14 times in 14 caps.

While he still has plenty of time to potentially chase down Ronaldo’s ever-growing tally, the prolific striker says any talks comparing him to the Portugal stat is premature.

He said, “don’t ever compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo, never. Ronaldo is, for me, in the top three best players in the history of football. I’m not going to rank him from first to third but he’s in there”.

“What he has achieved in football today for players of my generation is something exceptional. I was lucky enough to play against him in Italy and now that he’s back in the Premier League, it’s all good for English football”.

“I don’t have a goal number in mind. All that interests me is to win trophies”.

“As for the rest, comparing statistics and all that, it’s useless”.

Nonetheless, despite Lukaku terming the comparison to “useless”, the two can be lumped in at least one category which is; former Premier League stars who have left Italy and returned to England this summer.
