Ronald Koeman: 'Everyone loves Romelu Lukaku'

Ronald Koeman: 'Everyone loves Romelu Lukaku'

Everton boss Ronald Koeman has called for Everton's fans to get behind the club's star striker and top scorer Romelu Lukaku amid his decision to reject a contract extension.

And Koeman has vowed the comments made by the Belgian worldwide have not made him nervous as he still has time to run on his contract.

If Lukaku does get his wish to join a bigger club, it could be Everton's emerging young talents who fill his boots and Calvert-Lewin underlined his promise in the ninth minute.

"You need to have hope in life!"

The 23-year-old's goals at Goodison Park on Saturday also took him to 81 in the competition and he is one of only four players to pass the 80 mark before turning 24. The rest has to be done with the board and the manager.

It is believed the Belgium worldwide wants to test himself against the best players in in the world, and feels he can only do this if he is playing in the UEFA Champions League.

Everyone see the difference between this season and last and it is impossible to do this in one transfer window in one season.

"I didn't really know what I was doing on the celebration!" There is always competition.

"He is a professional and every professional gives the best for the club, the players, for everybody".

'I spoke with Rom about the project in the summer.

Antoine Griezmann was heavily tipped to replace the former Sweden global next season, but there are now rumours suggesting he may not leave Atletico Madrid as soon as many think. I'm not afraid of his situation because he has two years left on his contract'.

The win puts Everton tantalisingly close to the top four, five points behind Liverpool with the Merseyside derby at Anfield up next after the worldwide break.
