Olsson Is Helping Me Develop - Lukaku

Olsson Is Helping Me Develop - Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku believes he is turning into a better player thanks in part to Olsson's bullying on the training pitch.

Speaking to wba.co.uk Lukaku also talked about the potential for Chelsea to recall him in January and his Norwich winner.

'It was good to score but I'm happy with the win. You play football to win, if you can score then it's alright, but you play to win. For me, it's very important to play week in and week out because at 19 you want to develop and I hope to be one of the great players in the league. That is my ambition but I have to be patient as well. I can learn a lot here, I can improve here. Here are players who want me to improve, who challenge me every time in training like Jonas Olsson who is a bully with me - but I love it - Jonas is one of the top defenders in the league.'

As for the potential return to Chelsea, Lukaku added.

'I want to stay here. I've had so many questions in the last few weeks 'are you staying?'. I have a lot of contact with Chelsea but they are asking questions about my development and I tell them I'm very happy to be here. I have a head coach who wanted me from the beginning and I have a great rapport with him. I know what's going on. For me, it's a one year loan. Then hopefully it may be one year again because I need to play as much as I can in the next two years.'

I doubt there's a cat in hell's chance of us signing him permanently, but if we could get him next season as well whilst we continue to look for players of his calibre that are available that would be fantastic.
