Manchester United Striker Romelu Lukaku Rejects Drogba Comparison


Manchester United big summer signing, Romelu Lukaku has rejected suggestions he is a Didier Drogba type of player, saying that he is a player who wants to carve his own history. However, he acknowledged that he still has a long way to go.

The Belgian international, who has scored twice for United during their US tour, stressed that he is not a mere clone of Drogba – a player United boss Jose Mourinho managed brilliantly while at Chelsea.

 “I am different. Drogba is more of a target man, I am a player that has the ball into feet, who runs in behind,” Lukaku explained.
“There are physical similarities but we are totally different players. I am Romelu Lukaku and I want to create my own history.

“He was at Chelsea, I am at Manchester United. That is the difference.”

Lukaku, who could end up costing Man Utd over 105million Euros, also turned down the idea that he is at the same level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski.

“I am far from that level but that is where I want to aim,” he said of the comparisons.

“It is all about the team for me, I want the team to win trophies and I will do everybody in my power to make sure the team wins.

“There is always room for improvement and I just want to be the best person I can be.

“I’m 24 years of age, I cannot say I am the complete package, I can’t say I’m in my prime.

“There is still a lot of work to be done and I am delighted there is still a lot of work to be done. That means I can become even better than I am now.”
