QPR boss Harry Redknapp says Chelsea's next manager must back youngster Romelu Lukaku.

Redknapp wrote in the The Sun: "Jose Mourinho will be able to focus on rebuilding Chelsea’s invincible mentality while just tinkering with the team, should he return this summer.

"For starters, Mourinho might go for a striker. He built his old Chelsea team around Didier Drogba and there is every reason to suspect he will do a similar thing again.

"He likes a powerful striker who can hold up the ball, use aerial power and terrorise defenders.

"With that in mind, I would expect to see Romelu Lukaku return from his loan at West Brom after a great season.

"He has been talked about for a while as the new Drogba and Mourinho’s comeback would probably coincide with him returning to London."
