Romelu Lukaku had another frustrating evening in a top game, as he was unable to help Chelsea to points against Juventus on Wednesday. The reigning champions in the Champions League went down 1-0 in Turin, with Lukaku already in the grip of the damned duo Bonucci-Chiellini. But that’s not entirely his fault.
At least that is the opinion of his ex-trainer Antonio Conte. The former coach of Inter, but also of Chelsea and Juve, was an analyst at Sky Sport Italia before the game and had a clear opinion about Lukaku’s match. “He’s one of the hardest strikers to defend against, he can be dangerous anywhere. If you have a number nine like that, use him. I’m afraid Chelsea don’t know exactly how to do that yet,” he said. he.
It is thus a return with mixed success for Lukaku at Chelsea. In his first matches he scored on the assembly line, but in recent weeks his cannon has become increasingly dry. He was unable to score against Tottenham, Manchester City and Juventus. The criticism that Lukaku does not bring enough in top matches, is cranking up again.
