Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku: I’m aiming for the double next season
Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has admitted that he was disappointed not to make the shortlist for PFA Young Player of the Year, but set himself an ambitious target of winning both the young and main awards in the future, telling reporters he wants to “go for the double.”
The forward has netted 13 times during his season long loan spell at Everton from Chelsea, but was overlooked for the shortlist of the PFA young player award won by Eden Hazard.
“I’m disappointed that I was not among the nominees for the PFA awards,” admitted the Belgian.
“But that’s football.
“Next year I want to be on the shortlist again, and then I aim to be Player of the Year. I want to go for the double.”
While he is targeting the double next season, which club he will be at to undertake his task is unclear. The 20-year-old insisted he is focusing on Everton at the moment, but admits his future is down to Chelsea.
“We’ll see at the end of the season. I’m focusing on my performances at Everton.
“I still have a contract until 2016 at Chelsea and I think they’re happy about the way I’m developing.
“They have the last word, so we shall see what’s happening next.”
While no Chelsea striker has scored more league goals than Lukaku this season, he has a worse goals to minutes ratio than both Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o.
