Following chelsea star recent goal drought for Chelsea, Mohammed Salah has blasted the star for being a flat-track bully.
Romelu Lukaku has had a brilliant start to the season for Chelsea, scoring on his debut and contributing to the team’s cause with four goals in nine appearances. His prolific goalscoring has also continued for Belgium, with the star picking up five goals in their last four games.
However, finding the target has been difficult in recent weeks and in the last five games for Chelsea, the star has been unable to find the net.
For Salah, Romelu Lukaku’s inability to hit the target during matches against Liverpool and Manchester City only puts a question mark on the 28-year-old:
“Romelu has to do it against the big teams, for me, it’s still a question mark on him. I think he’s fantastic. He takes them to another level and he’s better than the players they had in that position. But he’s a flat-track bully. He’s someone who rolls over the lesser teams, he scores multiples against the lesser teams. He needs to go and do it against the Liverpool’s.”
“I think he got a raw deal there [at United]. I think he looks happier now coming back to the Premier League, he’s got unfinished business at Stamford Bridge. I still think he’s one of the best strikers in world football but I’d really like to see him do it against the top sides.”
Although Romelu Lukaku added to his tally for Belgium during the game against France in the Nations League, he hasn’t scored for Chelsea since mid-September, during their Champions League group match against Zenit St. Petersburg.
Comparing Chelsea’s £100 million purchase to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, salah explained that Romelu Lukaku needs to improve against big clubs and score:
“Let us not make excuses. We’re making excuses. He didn’t do it against Manchester City because the service wasn’t there. Top drawer players find a way to do it. Look me Mo Salah, I’m a perfect example. I turns up against Man City – produces that finish. I turns up against the big teams.”
