Fuck him off now. It's not like he is going to see the pitch between now and the end of the season.

Lukaku using us for the World Cup is the dumbest theory I have seen here and that is saying something. This guy literally came back too early to play for us and ended up getting injured again when he could have played it safe and just chilled until World Cup

The rumor now is that he’ll be fit for Last 16, good news for us is I don’t think Belgium will even get to that point

People act like this is a new concept. Every four years you see players demand transfers to try and put themselves in a position to make the World Cup squads. Why do you think Gosens was strongly linked with transfers out on deadline day? Gabriel Jesus moved to Arsenal because he wanted to prove he could be Brazil's #9, rather than winning trophies as a super sub at City. Lukaku returning to Inter isn't some tinfoil hat conspiracy theory. He was unhappy at Chelsea, he didn't get along with Tuchel, and I'm sure he wanted to be guaranteed playing time ahead of the World Cup.

We have no reason to believe Lukaku is faking this injury. Many of us pointed out during the summer that Lukaku might trouble to stay for without Pintus and Conte. He has a body type that history shows will not age well.

Let's hope management has the competence to move on from Lukaku in the summer and find a permanent, long-term solution. I would love to find someone more creative to pair with Lautaro.

Disagree, that’s only the case for certain players. Lukaku could have stayed at Chelsea, ate bench, earnt millions and millions more and still would have started every single Belgium match. Who’s going to bench him for Belgium…..Batshuayi? Pls

You assume Lukaku is a player who doesn't give a fuck.

You need to play to be on form for the World Cup. It's not like these top players just think as long as I get to World Cup, that's enough.

Pretty sure he wants to win the World Cup and probably the belgiums best shot since most their current generation is probably too old for 2026

Think some of the things being said about Rom is completely unfair and nonsense.

Their current generation is already too old for a silverware in 2022. Their best shot for a trophy was in 2016 when they choked against Wales.

But wait I thought you guys are saying that Lukaku purposely didn’t play for us in order to rest for the World Cuo but now you’re saying he needed to play to be inform?

Lukaku is actually lucky Mertens is too old and Batshuayi isn't in form either. Watch Belgium start Eden and Lukaku regardless :lol:

maybe not as far goalscoring goes, but he is/was a good player nonetheless

a friendly reminder that Giroud didn't score a goal but still was a World Cup winner 4 years ago.

It's just that what Belgium needs is SOMEBODY WHO WILL SCORE from all the chances served.
