Everton's Romelu Lukaku on what he learned from Didier Drogba

Didier Drogba

The Everton forward has once again been likened to Chelsea's legendary striker.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed the one thing he learned from Didier Drogba to Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old first moved to England back in in 2011 after impressing with Anderlecht in Belgium as a teenager.

He arrived with big expectations upon his shoulders, with many hoping he would go on to become the next Didier Drogba, who was the star forward at Stamford Bridge at the time.

Those comparisons have resurfaced this season as he impresses, and Lukaku says the one thing he has learned from his idol was his determination to win.

"He is my idol and he knows it, but I am Romelu Lukaku and I am proud of my family name and I want to make my own story," he told Sky Sports.

"As an 18-year-old, I was watching what they were doing and soaking it up and it was a good year of preparation.”

"[I learned] the determination to win. He was a leader. When the team needed him the most, he always delivered so that is what I aim for and hopefully one day I can say I was that type of player.”

Given the way Lukaku has performed this season, the comparisons with Drogba will continue despite his desire to create his own history.

The striker has looked very much the complete package, scoring all different types of goals just as Drogba used to do for Chelsea.

The similarities in their playing styles are also very similar, with Lukaku being big, powerful and good on the ball just like the Ivorian was in his prime.

He will be hoping that he can enjoy similar success to that of Drogba, with the legendary Chelsea striker having won everything in the game. For now, he will be focused on getting Everton into Europe this season.
