Thierry Henry, who works closely with Romelu Lukaku internationally, does not feel he is a good fit for the Tuchel system at Stamford Bridge.

 

A little about the topic

The French football coach has questioned Chelsea’s decision to sign the Belgian after seeing him fall for their Champions League opener in the last-16 tie against Lille. Romelu returned to Chelsea for a second spell at the club last summer, with the West London outfit paying a club-record fee of £98m to re-sign the Inter striker. Romelu Lukaku has since struggled to justify that price tag and achieved his worst performance of the season in the Blues’ 1-0 win at Crystal Palace at the weekend, as he managed just seven touches in 90 minutes.

 

What did Thierry Henry say?

Thomas Tuchel chose to rest the Belgian for his side’s 2-0 win against Lille in the first leg of their Champions League knockout stage, with Havertz scoring the opener after being tasked to lead the line instead of Romelu. There has been speculation that Kai Havertz could keep his seat when Chelsea take on Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday, and Thierry is not sure where Romelu goes from here. Thierry Henry, who helps coach the player internationally, said he asked himself right from the start, would he fit into this team? It takes time for Rom to adapt to the way Chelsea play, it’s not easy.

Is it normal that Lukaku only has seven touches against Palace? No, that’s not normal either, whether the coach likes you or not. This shouldn’t happen. They need to move forward, but it’s hard to read. Thierry will be honest with you, he doesn’t know what will happen in 90 minutes. But what’s the solution? The solution is for him to find a solution to make sure he can adapt to the way they play. According to Henry they like to push, be active and change the front three. Romelu Lukaku likes to stay in the middle so it’s very difficult for him to adapt to the situation.
