Lukaku: Great to be back and I’m ready to go!

The striker has officially started work with the Blues this week, joining in training and conducting his first press conference since he finalised a return to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan last week.

The Belgian was asked how he felt at returning to Chelsea, what his ambitions are and whether he is ready to face Arsenal on Sunday if selected.

‘It feels great to be back,’ Lukaku said at his official unveiling press conference. ‘It doesn’t feel like I’m coming into a new team because I’ve been here before and I know a few of the players from before.

‘I’m really happy to be here and it’s a good feeling to be joining the European champions. The guys are hungry for more and they want to keep winning. In training yesterday, I could see there was a really good intensity and everyone looked sharp.

‘Now I have the chance to join a team that’s very hungry and very ambitious. I can’t wait to add something to this group and I’m excited to get started.’
