- Romelu Lukaku is still angry with former Chelsea manager Villas-Boas
- The Belgian striker was left out of the Blues' squad that won the Champions League in 2012
- Lukaku stated that he was so sad that he couldn’t celebrate with the team
Former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has vowed not to forgive former Chelsea manager Andres Villas-Boas for leaving him out of the squad that won the Champions League in 2012.
The Belgian forward who arrived at the Stamford Bridge club in the summer of 2011 was not registered as part of the Blues' team that prosecuted the competition that season.
Lukaku who arrived the club for a fee of £17million was not favoured under manager Villas-Boas as he spent most of the time on the bench.
He only made his first start for the club in May the following year – well after Villas-Boas had been fired, but the arrival of Roberto Di Matteo seem to settle his nerves.
Di Matteo led the Blues to the Champions League games and insisted that Lukaku, along with injured and suspended players, travel with the squad - and they eventually won it in style.
Even though he had the opportunity to celebrate with his team-mates in Munich, Lukaku says he was not happy.
He added: "This win is one of the things I've always dreamed about. You want to celebrate something like that with the team at that time.
'That is nice in itself at the age of nineteen. I am happy for the whole club, but there is one man who took a lot from me: the previous trainer (Villas-Boas). I will never forgive him for that."
Lukaku has now claimed that he refused to hold the Champions League trophy when they were celebrating.
"I didn't touch it with a finger," he said. "Because I didn't win this trophy myself."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku has singled out Mason Greenwood as Man United's best young player.
Lukaku enjoyed a two-year stint at United under Jose Mourinho, before linking up with Antonio Conte at Inter last summer.
And it appears the former Everton and Chelsea striker saw Greenwood as an emerging prospect. The English youngster has enjoyed a significant rise under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who handed him first team debut in United's 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
The Red Devils academy graduate has since been a regular albeit as a backup forward, finding the back of the net 15 times in the currently suspended campaign.
