Liverpool legend names ‘brainless’ player in Chelsea squad


Liverpool legend, Steve Nicol has branded Romelu Lukaku as ‘brainless’ after Chelsea’s record signing publicly aired his grievances with Thomas Tuchel.

Lukaku had in an interview aired on Thursday said he was ‘not happy’ at Chelsea and wanted to return to Inter Milan.

The Belgian has since returned to the Blues lineup, scoring some vital goals for the team.

Nicol believes the interview was ill-advised and fears he has done irreparable damage to his relationship with the club’s fans especially when he talked about returning to Inter Milan.

“It’s kind of brainless, isn’t it. It’s some really brainless things to say,” Nicol told ESPN FC.

“Listen whenever you get pulled up when you’ve slaughtered somebody then you will start to spin it the other way and say ‘oh I didn’t mean that’.

“He’s basically criticised the manager saying that what he’s told them isn’t true. He doesn’t like the way they play.

“Who says that to the manager? And by the way, my heart is still at Inter. That’s exactly not what the fans want to hear. It’s brainless comments.”
