Everton manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that is confident about Romelu Lukaku‘s future at Goodison Park despite several rumors linking the Belgian star with a move back to Chelsea next summer.

The Toffee’s head coach said today: “The deal wasn’t agreed; 99.9 per cent is not 100 per cent and they are still trying to get the contract over the line. That’s what I know from the board.”

Lukaku recently claimed that ‘Everton as a football club has a great history, but the future has to be written’.

Koeman responded to the Belgian forward: “Of course I am not happy about that interview because, firstly, if Everton is not a club with a lot of ambition, I wasn’t the manager in Everton.

“Secondly, and I spoke with Rom this morning, I know it’s difficult but if you are a player, prepare yourself to play well and score goals – the rest needs to be done by the manager and the club.

“I spoke with Rom about this project. We had several talks about the future. But I am not so afraid about his situation because the player has two years more on his contract. Of course [I am confident of keeping him] and everybody knows what can happen in football. But you need to respect your contract”.

Lukaku showed his desire to play the Champions League and winning titles in the future, as a football player wants to be remembered.

“Every player has ambition, likes to play for titles, play in the Champions League. That’s a normal ambition. What we want to do and like to do is to show everyone that if there is one club out of the big six to make the next step then its Everton”.

Tottenham forward Harry Kane told EASPORTS.com that Spurs can still catch Chelsea in spite of his absence due to an ankle injury suffered against Milwall in FA Cup last week.

“We have to keep believing and we have a team who do believe – he said - As you saw from Barcelona against PSG, anything is possible in football”,

Then he added: “We are in a good position, second in the table but quite a few points behind Chelsea. We have a run of games where we are playing teams around mid-table and in the bottom half, so if we can get some good results, you never know.”

Kane’s injury is expected to be not as severe as the ankle problem that kept the England international out for 10 games recently.

Former Spurs and West Ham boss Harry Redknapp didn’t like the attitude of Chelsea fans toward their former manager Jose’ Mourinho.

The Blues supporters insulted and called “Judas” the Portuguese coach during the FA Cup game against Manchester United last Monday and Mourinho showed them three fingers, a way to remind them he won three leagues with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

When asked about this in the post-match press conference, Jose’ said:

“I am Manchester United manager and I have to defend my club, but I would like to remind Chelsea fans that until a coach will win 4 Premier League titles with them, Judas will be their number 1.”

Harry Redknapp explained that Chelsea fans behaviour was not fair:

“I didn’t like to see Chelsea fans giving their former manager so much stick either,” the English coach told Evening Standard.

“But this is the world we live in now, that’s how the game is.

“You go back somewhere and people give you grief.

“How can they give him stick after the job he did there?

“I didn’t blame him for reminding them how many titles he won in two spells by flicking three fingers.”

Ray Wilkins told Premier League Daily that former Chelsea manager José Mourinho should have deserved more respect from his former fans as the Special One returned to Stamford Bridge last time out.

I just wish our Chelsea supporters, and I’m a Chelsea supporter, showed a little bit more class to Jose Mourinho, – Wilkins claimed – People will naturally be thinking: ‘Hang on a second he was demonstrating stuff on the touchline against Chelsea’. Well yes he was but now he’s employed by Manchester United. Chelsea relieved him of his post”.

“If we actually remember what he’s done for our club, and I say our club because I’ve been a Chelsea man since I was 10 and a half, he’s worked miracles there”.

Then he added. “He’s a good bloke but he’s a football man, he wants his club to win. I just thought the other night against Manchester United they didn’t show him the respect he merits.

Wilkins agrees with Mourinho that ‘Jose will be number one until somebody wins as many trophies as Jose’.

When asked about the altercation between the Portuguese and Antonio Conte, he added: “When you’ve got two coaches on the sideline that have so much passion then you’re going to have a little confrontation.

“You could have said Conte was disrespectful to Jose. It was just a conflict of interests, they just had a row and these things happen.”
