LUK WHO’S YET TO GET HIS POWER

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

ROMELU LUKAKU is close to get­ting over his World Cup hang­over, ac­cord­ing to boss Roberto Martinez.

The Spa­niard saw his Bel­gium star strug­gle in Brazil – scor­ing just once in four games.

And Martinez said: “Rom’s still get­ting fit. I thought he was a real threat at times, although some­times he found it a lit­tle bit dif­fi­cult to cope with the in­ten­sity.

“Phys­i­cally we need to get him 100 per cent.

“Com­ing back from the World Cup is al­ways dif­fi­cult for any player, es­pe­cially for him – a player who needs to be full of power and full of aer­o­bic pace.

“We haven’t got him there yet, but the games will help.”
