Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku admits scoring goals is beautiful but he insists winning trophies is more important to him.
He said: “It’s not about records. It’s about winning trophies. I’ve realised how different people’s attitude is towards you when you win something. That’s something that I’ve learned. In conversations I had with Didier Drogba or John Terry or Antonio Conte, the respect I have is different when you start winning.
“That was something I really wanted. I wanted to win so bad. I went to Inter and then we did. That’s the only thing that matters to me – winning. Scoring goals, yes, that’s beautiful. I know I am in a position where I can score a lot of goals – but winning trophies, that sets you apart.
“I was young and I don’t think I was as evolved as I am now. My journey has had a lot of ups and downs but at the end of the day if you keep performing you know that you will always get a chance. My relationship with the club has always been great and now to be back at the perfect time is a good feeling.”
