Former Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge believes Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku didn’t get a chance under Thomas Tuchel.

Lukaku re-joined Inter Milan on loan last summer just a year on from his £97million move to Stamford Bridge having struggled upon his return to the Premier League.

“It depends on the manager,” Sturridge told Sky Sports, discussing the possibility of Lukaku reviving his Chelsea career under a new Chelsea manager.

“The new manager could come in and can build a team around him and I think that is probably what Lukaku needs.

“We will see, hopefully whoever comes in will fancy him and give him an opportunity because he didn’t really get a good chance to come out and prove himself once again at Chelsea, it was a very short period of time.

“So if he does come back and has a very good preseason I am sure the manager will know this guy is a goal scorer.

“Maybe there are things that teams will want him to do more of, but in regards of scoring goals Lukaku does that, that is what he is known for.”
