Lukaku is impressing on-loan from Chelsea, but admits he is fed up with being compared to Didier Drogba

Lukaku said: "Am I fed up being compared with Drogba? Yes. In the beginning it was nice to hear that, but every player wants to make his own name.

"I want to make my own name. Drogba was my big idol and so was my father, who also played in Belgium.

"I looked also to my father but really I want to make my own style of play, I want to be myself. I want the people to say 'this is Roman Lukaku, not the new Drogba'.

"I just want to be me and hopefully I will have a big career, but I want to do well now for this club and then we will see."
