Ex-Dutch star Van der Gijp: Lukaku must've been drunk signing for Chelsea!

Former Holland winger Rene van der Gijp says Romelu Lukaku was mad to join Chelsea last summer.

Lukaku struggled to make an impact at Chelsea last season after his £13 million move from Anderlecht.

Van der Gijp said: "He must've been drunk if he believed Chelsea would be as accommodating as Anderlecht. When was he playing in Belgium? At 15 or 16?

"If (Fernando) Torres is only on the bench, then would Lukaku play? Impossible."
