Told that Mourinho had no regrets about letting him go and felt playing for Everton was different from Chelsea, Lukaku replied: "What can I say? Everyone has their own opinion on things. I can only underline my case by scoring more goals than all the strikers currently at Chelsea, and that is what I will be striving to do this season.
"I hope my goals will help Everton finish higher than Chelsea. I am at Everton for the season, and I want to do as well as I possibly can for them. I also hope Jose Mourinho and I are both at Chelsea for a long time, because I want the best for Chelsea and I know he is a good coach.
"I think he makes his decisions in good conscience and with the intention of doing the best he can for the club. That's done now, and I can only concentrate on doing well at Everton.
"I had a good conversation with Roberto Martinez before joining them. He told me he would make me a better, smarter striker, and it was exactly what I wanted to hear. I think I am smarter already. My movement has improved, I am reading the game better and, as he promised, I am converting chances more efficiently.
"I knew I would settle well at Everton. I adjust to any new situation very easily, as I showed at West Brom last season. After a week here, I found a house near to where Kevin Mirallas lives. That helped me feel at home, and so too did the supporters' appreciation of the work I put in on the pitch. They can see that every time I pull on an Everton shirt, I try my best.
"I have a drive and ambition to be the best I can, but it's not just personal. I am always aware of responsibilities to the team, and I want to contribute to Everton having the best possible season while I'm here."
