Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has openly criticized the spending of owner Roman Abramovich, questioning his own signing last summer as he wonders why he was left out of the Champions League winner’s side this past year.
“I don’t like people talking to me about the Champions League. It wasn’t me, but my team that won,” Lukaku said to the BBC.
“When [Salomon] Kalou put the cup on my lap in the bus I asked him to take it away immediately. I didn’t want to touch it because just as with the Champions League I had no part in it at all,” he added when talking to De Standaard.
The talented young Belgian striker admitted that he may have to go on loan if he doesn’t see more playing time at Stamford Bridge next season.
“Chelsea really wanted me last summer and paid a lot for me but after a while I thought, are you just throwing money around?” he asked.
“During the conversation with the manager I will see whether he’s serious about me or not. If not, I will go away on loan. I have to play.”
