Lukaku insists no feud with Chelsea boss Mourinho

Romelu Lukaku insists there's no feud with his Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho. The on-loan Everton striker is said to have disappointed Mourinho with comments in the media this season.

"Ha! People said there were arguments," he told the Mirror. "There were arguments in the press and stuff, but I don't know where it came from. I just spoke to him and said hopefully what I wanted as a player and he was okay with it.

"Then I had the opportunity to go. The feeling I had after three games at Chelsea, I was really hoping for a starting spot, because of the season before when I had scored goals. But it's a big club, there is real competition, and they said there was a feeling I had to stay patient again.

"And the feeling that I had from my first year came up again, and I knew I had to go. Because how you could be on the bench after the year I had last year? Because I still want to progress. I don't want to be a one-season show.

"I just constantly want to impress people, constantly to hit people in the eye, like, 'Whoa, that Lukaku guy, he's a good player! Wow, we need to follow him. That Lukaku guy, he's a good player, bang, bang.'

"I want to hear people say that because then I know I'll have to do even better, because the next time they see me it has to be better - better than the year before."
