Tuchel excited by ‘perfect addition’ Lukaku

Chelsea completed the signing of Lukaku from Inter Milan yesterday, bringing the Belgian international back for his second spell at Stamford Bridge.

Although his arrival comes too late for the striker to be involved in tomorrow’s Premier League opener against Crystal Palace, Tuchel is confident we won’t have to wait long to see him making his mark with Chelsea and explained what it is about Lukaku that appealed to him.

‘We’re very happy to have Romelu back in the club as an addition to our squad,’ said our head coach. ‘We think in terms of personality, his speed, power, he can hopefully be an excellent choice for us and an excellent addition.

‘He has the power, he has the physique to help us. He has the experience, the personality, to have an instant impact in our squad. He is at the same time a humble guy and a true team player and he cares about Chelsea.’
