Romelu Lukaku posts injury update on Twitter amid Thomas Tuchel admission about Chelsea star


Romelu Lukaku has posted a cryptic update on Twitter regarding his injury as the Chelsea striker nears his return to action.

The 28-year-old striker, who moved to the Blues over the summer transfer window for a club-record fee of £97.5million, has been sidelined since hobbling off in Chelsea’s home clash with Malmo last month.

Lukaku‘s arrival at Stamford Bridge caused many to tip Chelsea to challenge for the Premier League title this season and so far, those predictions look to be correct, with Thomas Tuchel‘s team sitting pretty at the top of the table after 11 matches played.

The Belgium international, in a rather teasing style, took to his Twitter page to post an update on his injury, using the running, clock and injury emojis.

Lukaku has stayed put rather than traveling with Belgium for the international break because of his injury and Tuchel admitted before Chelsea’s draw with Burnley at the weekend that they would know more about when he will return after the break.

He said: “To give you any date now, I would have to confirm. We also have the national break now and we will be more clear after that.

“We will use the time, of course, and see what is going on in the second week of the national break.

“If you ask me the question then I can be more precise than now. We have that break and we will use it. He will have treatment every day, the same for Timo and Mateo, to bring them on the pitch as soon as possible.”

Lukaku has been very active on social media regarding his recovery from injury as he posted last week that he is back running again.

When Lukaku picked up the ankle injury in the Champions League win versus Malmo in October, Tuchel was asked about the amount of game time he had played prior to suffering the problem, but the Chelsea boss defended his decision to play the striker.

He said: “The role as favourites that we have now for some matches, it was a perfect role for Romelu to take pressure of other people’s shoulders, to take the responsibility.

“Speaking about it sometimes helps and I had the feeling that it helped. We can admit it and admit also that there is no major problem and we left him on the pitch.

“I felt him very, very happy to be on the pitch when we took the decisions together before the Malmo match and I told him trust your instincts, the thing will come back, luck will come back, we will create chances for you.

“I cannot see a positive thing from this injury. We will do what we do, make him come back as soon as possible, treat him in the best way possible, be positive and at the same time, we need to push the guys who are here.”
