Chelsea ‘make Sterling, Dembele and Nkunku top attacking targets’, Richarlison ‘chooses Blues over Madrid’

The pace of English football is too much for Lukaku, says Mikel

Former Chelsea star Mikel John Obi says Romelu Lukaku failed to meet the intense physical demands of the Premier League.

Ex-Nigeria midfielder Mikel, 35, was a Blues team-mate of Lukaku, 29, before the Belgian left Stamford Bridge for Everton in 2014.

Lukaku has failed to live up to the expectations that came with his £97.5million return from Inter Milan to Chelsea last summer.

When asked why Lukaku now seems to be a “square peg in a round hole” with the Blues, Mikel told Naija FM: “The league is completely different.

“The English league is too strong, too strong, too fast, while the Italian league is too slow.

“The English league has too much quality. The pace of English football is way too much for the Italian league.

“In the Italian league you can play until you’re 40, but in the English league you put in a lot more work.”
