Lukaku did not want to play for Wilmots
- Romelu Lukaku has launched a scathing attack on former Belgium boss Marc Wilmots. Wilmots spent four years in charge of Belgium but failed to take their so-called 'golden generation' past the last eight of the 2014 World Cup or Euro 2016. And Lukaku has admitted he didn't want to be selected for his country when Wilmots was in charge, reports the Manchester Evening News.
Lukaku feels as though he never had the full faith of Wilmots during his time in charge, despite regularly being selected to start matches. “I knew I was going to play.
The only problem was I also knew he didn’t want to play me," Lukaku told DHNet. “In that type of situation, you tell yourself ‘f*** off, leave me at home, don’t pick me’.
"You play for your country for pleasure. I never said I didn’t want to play here, but at that time, I didn’t enjoy being a part of it: I didn’t like getting selected."
