Lukaku wants to work with Mourinho in the future

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is keen to work with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho again in the future.

The Belgium international, 22, was a Chelsea player when Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge in 2013, only for the Portuguese to ship him out on loan to Everton before selling him to the Merseyside club 12 months later.

Lukaku does not hold any grudges against his former manager, though, and would be interested in a reunion with the Blues boss.

“Mourinho is the one coach I would like to work with,” Lukaku told Sport/Foot Magazine.

“And then there are Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger. In that exact order.”

The Belgium international also admires Wayne Rooney and would relish the chance to link up with the Manchester United striker.

He added: “I would love to play with Wayne Rooney. He really is a great player. He is strong with his head and has a sense for goals.

“We have played against each other very often. There was a chance to play together for Duncan Ferguson’s testimonial, but I had to miss the game due to injury. I still regret that.”
