Romelu Lukaku might have drawn the fury of Everton manager Ronald Koeman, as he said in an interview that the Toffees do not have enough ambition.

The Belgian revealed his ambition to win titles and play in the Champions League, and it didn’t go down too well with Koeman.

“First of all the deal wasn’t agreed, 99.9% is not 100%. They are still trying to get the contract over the line, that’s what I know from the club,” Koeman said in his pre-match press conference.

“Of course, I’m not happy about that interview, because first, if Everton is not a club with a lot of ambition, I wouldn’t be the manager.

“The second, and I spoke with Rom this morning, I know it’s difficult, but if you’re a player, prepare yourself to play good and to score goals

“We know he’s one of the best, the rest needs to be done by the manager and the club.”

Everton refused to sell the Belgian to Chelsea last summer, and Koeman suggests that it could happen again this summer.

“I’m not so afraid about his situation, the player has two more years of his contract.

“Everybody knows what can happen in football, but you need to respect your contract.”
