Thomas Tuchel insists Chelsea won’t change style to suit Romelu Lukaku

Tuchel on Lukaku

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he won’t change his team’s style of play to help Romelu Lukaku.

The London side signed Lukaku from Inter Milan for a club record fee, signaling his return to the club after seven years away from Chelsea.

But, he has appeared to struggle in front of goal this campaign, with the striker coming under criticism for his controversial interview with Sky Sport Italia in December.

Speaking to the media ahead of Chelsea’s game against Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday, Tuchel revealed that despite Lukaku’s struggles in front of goal, he will not change his system to help the 28-year-old.

“No, we do everything to help him. It is absolutely the wrong question because it is focusing on one player.

“He is a key player and we want him to be a key player but this is for me the wrong approach. This is what we do by the way constantly, for any player.

“It’s a team sport, not about ten players serving one player. This is not Chelsea or football. Every player serves one team, this will never change.”

The Belgium international has only scored eight goals in 22 matches in all competitions for Chelsea this season.

He started up front for Chelsea during the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday, but failed to find the back of the net against the Premier League leaders.

Lukaku’s last goal came in the FA Cup third round victory against Chesterfield.
