The 19-year-old does not intend to live in the Ivorianâs shadow and is determined to make his own name in the game.
âAt first it was ok - but Iâm bored of it now,â he told the WBA website. âIt isnât necessary and I donât like it now.
âI have my fatherâs surname, I am Romelu Lukaku - Iâm not anybody else. This is my own name and the name I want people to remember.
âDidier and I have a similar playing style but I donât think he would have wanted to be compared to someone when he was young.
âEvery player wants to be their own person, their own personality. I donât want to be the ânew anyoneâ.â
