Romelu Lukaku wants a manager who gives young players a chance

Chelsea youngster Romelu Lukaku will speak to the Blues new full time manager to see where his future lies after enduring a difficult campaign last term.

The 18-year-old only made 12 appearances during the last campaign and recently launched a scathing attack on former manager Andre Villas-Boas claiming that he will never forgive the Portuguese boss for how he treated him.

The west Londoners are yet to appoint a full time manager, although interim head coach Roberto Di Matteo won the FA Cup and Champions League during his time in termporary charge.

“I will need to talk to the coach about my future,” Lukaku said.

“I hope for a coach next year who gives chances to young players, not like last year. If he does not want to talk to me, then I’m considering a loan.

“But at the moment my focus is on Chelsea. I will go with them on summer tour and I hope to get some new chances.

“I think I deserved more chances at Chelsea. What I really need is three months to prove myself.

“Last year I played a game, then nothing for three weeks except games with the reserves and then I was on the bench. That is not easy for a young player. I also said that to Chelsea and they understood my concerns.

“I have become a better player though. I lost weight, I move a lot more on the field and I really think I have the ability to play for Chelsea.”
