Koeman: Replacing Lukaku Is A Big Ask

Everton manager, Ronald Koeman says replacing Romelu Lukaku is an almost impossible task.

The Belgium international striker left Goodison Park for Old Trafford in the summer for a fee of £75 million.

Lukaku scored 25 goals last season for Everton and has only been at the club for four years and Koeman says replacing the number of goals is a huge task.

“I don’t say impossible, but that was close to impossible to get someone in who will score that amount of goals that Romelu scored for Everton,” the Dutchman said, via the Liverpool Echo .

“With Romelu we had enough fights about how he needs to press, how he needs to run, how he needs to move but in the box, with opportunities to score, he is one of the best.

“It is always difficult to replace players like him because of the person he was, the physical boy that he is, the number of goals that he scored. It is difficult.”
