Some West Brom fans have flocked to a tweet that was recently posted by ex-Baggies striker Romelu Lukaku in which the 26-year-old Belgium international shares gratitude to his former club.
The Baggies’ official Twitter account recently posted a tweet lauding Lukaku’s “incredible season” with West Brom, back in the 2012/13 campaign. The club’s recent tweet shares a compilation of some of the goals the Belgian striker scored during his time at The Hawthorns.
This post caught the attention of Lukaku himself, who responded to the Baggies’ recent tweet by stating that he is “grateful for the opportunity” that West Brom provided him.
Many West Brom supporters flocked to the goalscorer’s recent tweet to share praise for him and his time at The Hawthorns.
Lukaku was a West Brom player for just one season, joining the Baggies on loan from Chelsea from August 2012 until the end of May 2013. The attacker, who is currently valued at £76.5m according to Transfermarkt.co.uk, scored a total of 17 goals and provided seven assists for the Baggies in his 35 Premier League appearances for the club, ending that season as the sixth-highest goalscorer in England’s top-flight and helping West Brom to achieve an eighth-place finish that term.
It may be fair to say that Lukaku and his goals played a significant role in helping the Baggies to achieve an eighth-place finish in the 2012/13 campaign. As a result, it may not come as a surprise that many West Brom fans have been reacting positively to his recent tweet reminiscing on his time at the club.
