Lukaku Plays And Speaks Like A Football Manager- Says Everton Manager Roberto Martinez.

Seems Everton manager Roberto Martinez just can't get enough of Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku after he netted the winner against West Ham over the weekend.

The deadline-day loan signing made it eventful in his first appearance for the merseyside outfit,by coming off the bench to score the decisive goal in the dying minutes of the game,getting himself injured in the process,and later admitted to press men after the game that he could not recall his match-winning goal.

But what has surprised the Spanish Manager the more is the 'managerial knowledge' Lukaku possesses,which has made him shower praises on the 20-year-old.

Martinez said in his Pre-match conference;"Believe me,I have worked with him for three weeks, and I don't see a weakness,"

"It is an exciting feeling to get a player like that in the dressing room.

"I was delighted with the instant impact he had, but not just in his play.

"He's a thinker, a real knowledgeable man.

He[Martinez] also added;

"He speaks six languages,and is someone who looks at games in a very different way. He's like a manager in the way he looks at games.

"He looks at where the movement is,where the space is, and I have been very surprised at that side of him.

"And he has that at 20! He will speak about games that he has seen,and different moves. It's not a normal conversation that you would have with a 20-year-old footballer, believe me!"

The Belgian striker Lukaku would be looking forward to add to his goals tally in tomorrow's Capital One Cup against Fulham after passing a medical test following his head injury at Upton Park.

Chelsea fans would not easily want to forget the penalty miss of the 'baby Drogba' against Bayern Munich in the Uefa Super Cup final late August. Truly a case of different strokes for different folks.
