Lukaku still angry at Villas Boas

The Belgian forward signed last summer but found playing time hard to come by under both Villas Boas and his replacement Roberto di Matteo.

Lukaku told Sportwereld: “There is one person that I will never forgive for what he did to me – the previous coach. It’s not just that. It was also the way he spoke to me and treated me.

“Right from the beginning, it was weird. I could not stand how he was treating me. I received no explanation. In training, he put me on the right or left wing. In training matches, I was a substitute with a shirt to keep swapping teams. I really learned nothing.”
