The Everton fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing comments made by their star players agent with regards to his future.
The Liverpool Echo is reporting quotes made by Romelu Lukaku’s agent Mino Rainola made to Belgian media outlet DH.
The players agent claims that the Everton man is ready to play for one of Europe’s top clubs and compete in the Champions League.
Only last week Lukaku himself made comments about his hopes of playing Champions League in the near future, it could prove to be an uneasy summer to be a fan of Everton.
Lukaku has enhanced his reputation by maintaining his fine goalscoring form with 25 goals to date in what has been a season of under par performances from his current club side. Speaking about Lukaku, Rainola said:
“He’ll be even better. It all depends on his work, a bit of luck, and making the right choices. Potential wise, he’s already ready to play in the best European teams. I’m not surprised at all. Romelu is superior physically and humanely to a lot of players. He’s got a heart of gold, which is very important in football, but also a lot of talent.”
“Since we’ve been working together, we’ve put together a structure that allows him to only think about football. This allows him to focus solely on his personal objectives, which, in the end, is the most important.”
The Everton fans in The Tavern are not surprised that comments have been made by Lukaku’s agent and that they think he has his own interests at heart rather than Lukaku’s and is trying to unsettle the player so he demands a summer move away from the club.
