William Gallas Exclusive: At A Loss With Lukaku Deal

Ex-Chelsea defender William Gallas has questioned his former side’s decision to re-sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan last summer. Lukaku joined the Blues for a second time in August for a club-record £97.5million fee, but has managed just five Premier League goals so far. The Belgian’s controversial comments to the media also caused a public falling out between him and manager Thomas Tuchel – and the striker seems to have lost confidence since then, failing to score in the league in 2022. Gallas has cast doubts on Lukaku’s pedigree in front of goal, pointing to the 28-year-old’s failure thus far to finish a league season as top scorer.

Never Finished Top Of Scoring Charts

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “Chelsea brought back Lukaku and he hasn’t performed and hasn't since he had that interview with the Italian newspaper and from that interview, he lost his confidence. 

“I don't understand how a player like him has lost his confidence. 

“He doesn't score goals. When he plays, he doesn't play well. I'm not talking about the transfer and the money, I'm talking about the player and his performance.

“He should do better and he doesn't perform. Sometimes people say he has to adapt, but he knows the Premier League very well. So, for me, he doesn't need time to adapt to Premier League football. 

“I don’t understand why Chelsea bought him. When you look, last season, he had a great season with Inter Milan, but he wasn't the top scorer. 

“I'm sorry, when you look at the statistics, he has never finished as the top scorer in the league, which is worrying for someone who cost almost £100million. 

“If he stays next season, the pressure will be more on his shoulders and that's good and we'll see if he's strong enough in his mind.”
