Romelu Lukaku accused of a lack of respect after latest social media post

Everton fans are pissed

Romelu Lukaku must have known the reaction that would follow a video of him playing football on a Chelsea branded pitch.

The Everton centre-forward, who has been heavily linked with a return to Stamford Bridge this summer, posted footage of a goal on a pitch with the Blues badge on the surrounding hoardings.

Was it a coincidence or a message?

It seems more likely by the day that the Belgium international will rejoin Chelsea, the club for which he made 15 appearances between 2011 and 2014.

Comments from the 24-year-old earlier this summer certainly suggested that he was on his way out of Goodison Park.

“I know what’s happening, but I can’t tell you anything more. The most important thing is I want to win trophies,” Lukaku told Belgian newspaper HNL, translated by Evening Standard.

“We are talking to the club. What I would like most is to play in the Champions League and to try and win the Premier League once – or better, a few times. That would be the most beautiful thing.

“That’s important for my progress as a player. I don’t want to stay at the same level. I want to improve and I know where I want to do that.”

Toffees supporters must be coming to terms with the possibility that they will have to say goodbye to the club’s top scorer last season.

But they are definitely not happy about the manner in which Lukaku seems to be trying to force the move to come to fruition.
