Romelu Lukaku signed for Everton proceeding from Chelsea in the summer of 2014: a permanent move that followed two years on loan ( to WBA and the Toffees).
At the time it was claimed that the Belgian striker had fallen out with José Mourinho, who was Chelsea manager in 2014, but the same Portuguese coach denied this in a press conference yesterday.
“It’s quite a great experience the fact we worked together already for a few months,” Mourinho revealed speaking in Los Angeles during Manchester United USA tour, after Lukaku joined the Red Devils one week ago.
“During the time when I was at Chelsea and then United, and he was at Everton, our relationship was always very close, despite not working together.
“He’s intelligent, he’s polite, we kept the contact, the feeling, and now we are back together in different moments and I have no doubts it is going to work.”
