Romelu Lukaku isn’t good enough for Chelsea – Cascarino

first_imgJose Mourinho doesn’t feel Romelu Lukaku is good enough for Chelsea and the club will look to sell the young striker in the future, according to Tony Cascarino.The former Blues forward says the Didier Drogba’s arrival is confirmation of what Mourinho thinks about Lukaku.“I’ve said before that I totally believe Mourinho doesn’t think Lukaku is good enough. If he thought Lukaku could come in and do a job it would have been a no-brainer, but I don’t think he’s ready,”“I’m not his biggest fan. I’ve looked at him over the last couple of years. He went to West Brom, was subbed lots of times, came on and had a great goalscoring record as a sub. He got a few goals and had a great run at the end of the season. Everton fans are also very undecided about him.”Cascarino says Lukaku doesn’t meet the standards required at Chelsea, and the club will look to move him on in the future, though matching their asking price for the forward may be difficult.“Sell him? That will eventually happen, but the price some clubs will look to pay for Lukaku won’t be the same as what Chelsea value him at. It’s a real conundrum for the player because he obviously wants to play football,”“He had times when he done very well for Everton; I saw him lots of times when he was mediocre. I felt his first touch certainly wasn’t up to the standard required of a team fighting at the top of the table.”last_img read more
