Why Lukaku's brother won't even entertain Tottenham

AVB Alone

Jordan Lukaku was linked with Tottenham this week, but don't expect the Chelsea ace's brother to move to White Hart Lane.

No doubt about it, young Belgian footballers are Europe's biggest commodity at present.

With the nation just qualifying for next summer's World Cup, the next batch of talent are itching for standout seasons to even break into the squad.

Failing that, a move to a top European club will bode well for the future, and Jordan Lukaku is one of those such prospects.

Brother of Everton loan star Romelu Lukaku, Jordan was recently named by an Italian website as one of the top 40 talents under 20 in Europe.

Unlike his brother, Jordan Lukaku is a left-winger, and still plays back in Belgium for Jupiler Pro League side Oostende, where he is on loan from Anderlecht.

This has not prevented his name being linked with top clubs around Europe, including AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur.

However as keen as he is for a big move, don't bet on it being to Spurs.

Check out the comments made from his big brother about manager Andre Villas-Boas in 2012, who he blames for wasting his debut season at Chelsea.

"There is one person that I will never forgive for what he did to me - the previous coach. (AVB)

"It's not just that. It was also the way he spoke to me and treated me.

"Right from the beginning, it was weird. I could not stand how he was treating me. I received no explanation.

"In training, he put me on the right or left wing. In training matches, I was a substitute with a shirt to keep swapping teams. I really learned nothing!"

Not exactly a ringing endorsement, and you can imagine what the striker has to say about him in private.

Belgian under-21 international Jordan Lukaku may well move on, but his brother's lack of success and career progression under the now Spurs boss makes risking repeating the same mistake unlikely.
