EPL: How Drogba Influenced My Return To Chelsea – Lukaku
Didier Drogba had a part in Romelu Lukaku’s return to Chelsea, according to the Belgian striker.
The 28-year-old claims to have a strong connection with Drogba, who he claims helped him prepare for his comeback to Stamford Bridge.
Following Lukaku’s arrival from Anderlecht in 2011, the two players were teammates at Chelsea for one season.
Lukaku and Drogba remain close and communicate frequently.
“Our bond is really important to me. It’s not like we just communicate once a month. Every few days, I chat with the man!
“We have a group chat, we’re always chatting, and I’ve spent more time on the phone with him in the last two weeks.
Lukaku told the club’s official website, “I had a lot of things to ask and he still knows a lot of people here so he really prepared me well with the last details.”
