‘They don’t quite understand how to use him,’ Conte says, implying that Chelsea has yet to discover Romelu Lukaku’s true potential.

Chelsea have yet to figure out ‘how to use’ Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku, according to former Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte. Lukaku flourished under Conte’s tutelage at Inter Milan during their two seasons together before joining Chelsea this summer. Lukaku has had an impressive start to his second spell at Chelsea, scoring four goals in eight appearances across all competitions. However, the 28-year-old’s influence on Chelsea matches has waned in recent weeks. During their time together in Italy, former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte was able to get the best out of the striker. Chelsea, according to the Italian tactician, are using Lukaku too one-dimensionally and have yet to get the best out of him. “He’s a very specific striker,”

says. Lukaku is a dangerous player to bring into the box. When he starts from midfield, however, he is lightning fast. “It’s extremely difficult to find a player who can play both as a target man and as a midfielder,” Conte told Sky Sports Italia. “It’s also a tactical situation; a centre-forward goes looking for the opposing defenders, backs into him, and lays it off for whoever is supporting him. In basketball, this is also a tactical approach. “”There are times during the game when Lukaku needs to be turned on, but he is one of the most difficult forwards to play against because he can cause havoc in any area of the pitch. If you have a centre-forward like that, you have to use him, and I don’t think Chelsea has yet figured out how to do that,” Conte said. On Wednesday night, Chelsea were defeated 1-0 by Juventus in the Champions League. In the 46th minute, Federico Chiesa scored the game’s only goal.
