In the case of Romelu Lukaku, comparisons have tarnished his reputation and shadowed his achievements until now. Likening to Drogba, he had mentioned that the other player was the idol he looked up to and the same was being made aware by the player, said Romelu Lukaku in December 2015. He also said that they share tips with each other and their relationship as professional players have been on the stronger side since day 1, he quoted.
Even if he does not score a goal, or play out an assist, the sheer presence of him in the team is going to influence the other players in the team, especially the new ones. He is one of the best idols that football has ever got and Lukaku although in a playing different environment from Drogba, is also considered one of the greats of the game. Maybe the only similarity of the two players is that they have an African Heritage and once upon a time, they used to play together at Chelsea and that was one of the best moments in football as well. It will be interesting to see how the team fares because of the player.
