“Get him out of the football club” – Noel Whelan urges Chelsea to offload player ‘lucky’ to receive applause at Stamford Bridge
Noel Whelan has urged Chelsea to sell Romelu Lukaku in the summer as he believes the Belgian is not good enough to be at Stamford Bridge.
Noel Whelan has urged Chelsea to sell Romelu Lukaku in the summer as he believes the Belgian is not good enough to be at Stamford Bridge and the club should cut their losses.
The Blues signed Lukaku last summer for a club-record fee to put an end to their issues in front of goal. However, he hasn’t been at his best and has failed to create the desired impact.
Noel said, “With the way Havertz is playing – it becomes a very easy decision for Chelsea. I think he has proven that he can be the number nine for them. He’s been brilliant and has shown real quality.”
“We all know that he’s a different style of player to Lukaku, but I think there’s been too much controversy with Lukaku. The interview was just disrespectful, but if that’s what he wants – then get him out of the football club and off the wage bill. They can then go out there, start again, and get someone who can give you the right attitude to fight and succeed in England and in Europe.”
“The whispers don’t lie. He’s very lucky to still get the applause he does at Stamford Bridge because he hasn’t shown anywhere near enough in a Chelsea shirt.”
