I’m most dangerous facing goal – Lukaku – Sporting Life
Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed he hates his ‘goal poacher’ reputation.
The Belgian returned to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan this summer in a deal worth £98m.
At just 28, Lukaku has mustered 255 goals in domestic football, but the powerful forward insists he has much more to his game than finding the back of the net.
Lukaku has told UEFA’s official website: “The way I’m built – I’m quite big – everybody thinks I’m a sort of target man: just holding up the ball and being a goal poacher. But I’ve never played that way and I hate it.

“My biggest strength is that I’m dangerous when I’m facing towards the goal, because that’s when I rarely make wrong choices.
“After I pass the ball, I know where I have to position myself in the box. I can do a bit of everything and in some games when I know there is a lot of space behind the defence, I play differently.
“The reason I’m so productive [in front of goal] is because I can do a bit of everything.”
