Lukaku pleased with decision

New Everton signing Romelu Lukaku insists he is delighted to have made the decision to move to Goodison Park.

Last Updated: 03/09/13 at 21:42 Post Comment

The Chelsea striker had the option of moving back to West Bromwich Albion, where he spent a hugely-successful campaign last season.

However, on deadline day Lukaku opted for Everton ahead of a return to The Hawthorns - and he insists he is happy with his decision.

"I am very glad," he said on Sky Sports News. "I read that some said I was not happy but I am very happy - this is a club that can bring me a lot, and I can bring a lot too.

"I still hope to grow and bring a lot to this team."

Lukaku says that he left Chelsea on good terms, as a number of people were shocked by their decision to loan him out.

"I think at my age it is important to play a lot, I have a good relationship with the coach at Chelsea and I hope to have good results," he added.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
