Lukaku: 'Why prefer Michy to Romelu?'

Lazio wing-back Jordan Lukaku can’t understand why some prefer Michy Batshuayi to Romelu Lukaku. “He dribbles a lot, but a striker is meant to score goals.”

The two brothers will face off at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

Ahead of the Serie A encounter, Eleven Sports interviewed Jordan Lukaku and he had something to say about those who criticise his brother.

“Many people in Belgium prefer Michy to Romelu, but how is that possible? He dribbles here and there, is lovely to watch, has great technique, but a striker is meant to score goals, isn’t he?

“It seems that is no longer sufficient nowadays. I’ve seen so many trying to take Romelu down, who said they were better than him, why are they all against him?

“Romelu never lets it get to him, though, he always shows perseverance.”
