In the same interview, Lukaku also criticized Tuchel’s style of play, which limited him to too few chances in front of goal.

But Tuchel also irritated Lukaku with a taunt mocking the forward’s relationship with his former manager Antonio Conte.

Corresponding Goal’s Nizaar KinsellaLukaku was dissatisfied with Tuchel’s handling.

Kinsella revealed: “To see him talk so highly about Inter [during the Sky Italia interview] was an insult to Chelsea fans. It broke the relationship with them.

“And there was another incident behind the scenes that wasn’t televised or anything.

“Someone told me that Lukaku and Tuchel were watching a Tottenham game and Tuchel said, ‘There’s your daddy’, about Antonio Conte.

“It was just a joke, but apparently it didn’t sit well with Lukaku.”

Lukaku seemed unsettled at Chelsea and Tuchel left him out of his team for large parts of the season, with Kai Hvertz taking his place.
