Romelu Lukaku was a Chelsea player from 2011 to 2014 before he joined Everton permanently following a successful loan spell at Goodison Park the previous season.
Lukaku picked his five-a-side dream team and 4 out of the 5 players in his dream team are Chelsea players. The only non-Chelsea player is Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany who is his Belgian compatriot.
In his five-a-side dream team, Lukaku chose Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois as the goalkeeper.
“I’ve known him since I was 12, I’ve played against him my whole life,” Lukaku said. “He’s done a great job at Chelsea and Atletico Madrid so I’d choose him.”
In defence, Lukaku chose Chelsea captain John Terry and Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany.
Explaining why he chose Terry, Lukaku said: “I’d choose John because he’s the biggest leader. In the dressing room, he had such a great impact on the team. To witness that with my own eyes, it was something amazing.”
Of Kompany, Lukaku said: “Kompany used to be a very good ball playing centre-half back in the day and he has still got it. He comes from the same academy at Anderlecht and has been an example for us, the younger kids, who came through the ranks.”
In midfield, Lukaku selected Frank Lampard.
“Frankie was just a joke, unbelievable finisher. I’ve seen him do stuff where I think “my god”. He used to take his time with me doing finishing, he’d be there for me so I’ll never forget that. In the Premier League, I’ve never seen anyone better than him,” Lukaku said.
Lukaku chose Didier Drogba in attack.
“The main man. The game-winner, game changer. He used to win games whenever we were in trouble,” Lukaku said.
