Clutching at straws here. 

The interview was setup by Sky Italia as a means for Lukaku to explain the reasons behind his move from Inter Milan to Chelsea, which didn't go down well with Inter fans at the time. 

It was also recorded 3 weeks prior to when it was released, which coincided with Lukaku being eased back into the side after picking up his ankle injury and his contracting of COVID-19. During this period there had been talks between Tuchel and Lukaku re; his frustrations about being held back. 

Because of the manner in which everything happened, including certain points being taken out of context or simply blown out of proportion, it became the whole ordeal that it ended up being. 

 

Nope.

The interview was set up by Lukaku with Sky Italy , he asked for the opportunity and they fell over themselves to give it to him as was reported at the time , all his own work , the timing not so much.

It’s good that we are finally moving on. It now seems that TT has more control over who comes and who goes. So now we will see the players that he wants and hopefully a attacking system with identity for the next season. He’s getting a lot of backing here.

Can not be over stated enough.

£100m signing sent out on loan 12 months after joining when clearly the manager does not want him.

A very bold move by everyone involved and hopefully a sign that the new owners will allow Tommy the tools to to his job.

In fairness you've only got to look at City and Liverpool to see how clubs should be run, it's not rocket science but most clubs have gone so far away from this since the days of Ferguson and Wenger. Everyone thought the days of managers running football clubs were long gone but it appears that some are now realising of you have the right person in charge it really is best to let them do the job they are paid to do. Even Daniel Levy is doing it.

The premier league has 4 of the top 5 managers in the world and it looks like all 4 clubs are going to allow them to run the team how they see fit. I can see some of the best title races the footballing world has ever seen coming up in the next few years, only downside is Tottenham will be involved.

One last thing, got trains to drive today , some will be aware that I have an old mate that works withing the club, I always say he gets as much wrong as right but has been right on a number of occasions, including us signing Morata when everyone thought he would go to United and we would sign Lukaku.

Anyway, he says that Dembele will be finalised shortly after Lukaku, everything is in place, the idea was we will offset his wages by not having Lukaku on the books anymore. Although he is on a free his singing on fee and wages would have cost a fair amount but the Lukaku loan fee and getting rid of his wages basically means one in, one out with negligible difference in cost as opposed to a 'free' signing that actually cost a fortune.

Makes sense. With Dembele and Sterling next season we will have 2 tricky wingers who will hog the ball all day. Let’s hope they create havoc. Then out with Pulisic he’s hardly available for any meaningful period of time. Ziyech stays for me. CHO out. Gallagher in.
