Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has warned he shouldn’t be compared to Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Both players left the Serie A for the Premier League during the transfer window. While Ronaldo rejoined Manchester United, Lukaku rejoined Chelsea for a club-record fee.
“Don’t ever compare me to Cristiano Ronaldo, never,” Romelu Lukaku has told the media at the latest press conference.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is, for me, in the top three best players in the history of football. I’m not going to rank him from first to third but he’s in there. As for the rest, comparing statistics and all that, it’s useless,” the Belgian added.
Ronaldo and Lukaku were the Serie A top scorers last season with 29 and 24 goals respectively.
