Jamie O'Hara likens Chelsea situation to Tottenham star Harry Kane summer saga
Romelu Lukaku has rocked his own club’s fans by saying he was unhappy at Chelsea, and that he hopes to return to Inter Milan at some point. Jamie O’Hara thinks it makes Harry Kane’s Tottenham summer saga look like “small change”.
Whether Lukaku’s comments were taken out of context, or deliberately posted a few weeks after the interview was recorded – the claims are in black and white. He states that he was unhappy to play a bit-part role at Chelsea.
Indeed, Thomas Tuchel used him sparingly at times during the first half of the season. Lukaku also said, speaking to Sky Sport Italia – as per BBC Sport – that he would love to rejoin Inter Milan at some point in his career.
“I’m not happy with the situation, this is normal,” said Lukaku at the time. “But I am a worker and I must not give up. I really hope in the depths of my heart to return to Inter, not at the end of my career, but at a still good level.”
Kane, meanwhile, was lambasted by his own Tottenham fans in the summer for returning late to pre-season – after Daniel Levy refused a move to Manchester City. O’Hara believes Lukaku’s comments are worse than Kane’s saga.
O’Hara on Lukaku: Chelsea situation worse than Kane and Tottenham
The issue is, is that Kane has played for Tottenham his entire career. There are large groups of Spurs fans who would have accepted his exit – one that he probably deserves. If he is to win trophies, an exit was needed.
So, they understand – to some degree – Kane’s frustration. For Lukaku to say he wants to return to Inter while still playing at a good level, only a few months after rejoining Chelsea, is ludicrous. He deserves the criticism he is getting.
