Lukaku slams Chelsea treatment

Romelu Lukaku has taken a parting shot at Chelsea following his loan move to West Brom, claiming that a difficult debut season for the Blues made him fall out of love with football.
Lukaku, 19, arrived at Stamford Bridge to a fanfare last August after emerging as a teenage prodigy at Anderlecht.

However, the Belgium international failed to justify his £18 million price tag in a frustrating 2011-12 campaign, with first-team opportunities proving limited under first Andre Villas-Boas and then Roberto Di Matteo.

Lukaku made just 12 appearances - four of them starts - in all competitions and despite Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou departing over the summer, he felt he would be better served looking elsewhere for regular football.

The 6' 3" striker completed a loan move to West Brom last week but has now taken a swipe at his parent club for their treatment of him.

I think a loan spell will do wonders for him. Although he is behind Sturridge and Torres in pecking order, the few times I have seen him play he was pretty decent

Yeah, he's got the raw talent, just not enough experience.

Lukaku has serious quality and potential. Given the game time he can be world class IMO. The guy is only just 19!

If they can keep him happy and keep hold of him he'll prove himself to be a great player in time.
