The football programming on Belgian television seems to be much more fun than its English counterpart. That's possibly because football on Belgian television regularly features Romelu Lukaku, who makes everything better. In an end-of-season interview translated by ace Reddit user volar92 (turn on the subtitles), the big striker discusses his season, Chelsea, and quite a lot more.
Some quick talking points:
- Lukaku seems perfectly happy with the way he's been treated and was glad that he got to spend the second half of the season on loan rather than be recalled. He also seemed almost embarrassed that they focused so much on his exploits against Manchester United in Sir Alex Ferguson's last game of his career.
- The section on Thorgan Hazard will be interesting for those of you who haven't seen much Zulte Waregem this season. Anderlecht's manager confirmed that they'd like to get hold of him for next season (I assume this is where all the news stems from), but the analysis of his play is pretty good.
- I really like the way that Chelsea's Belgian players seem get along. Lukaku and Eden Hazard seem very close, and Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois have known each other since they were quite young. There is a core of young talent that's both very good at football and has a very strong bond. Can't ask for much more than that.
