Koeman: Everton Must Hold On To Lukaku

share on:

Everton manager, Ronald Koeman feels Everton must do everything possible to hold on to forward, Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international has stated his decision to not sign a contract extension at Goodison Park.

Lukaku scored a brace late on in the 4-0 win over Hull City and Everton has now moved to sixth on the table, equal on points with Arsenal and was showed much love by the fans.

“They love Rom,” Koeman told Sky Sports. “Everybody loves Rom because he’s really that key player, the top scorer in the team and he showed that today.

“Maybe you can stop him for 85 minutes but when it is 11 against 10, even when it was 11 against 11, if he gets space and if they make the kind of mistake for the fourth goal then he will punish that. That’s one of his big qualities.

“Of course, we would like to keep the best players because we think we are in a good direction in this project and you don’t sell your best players.

“We know we have played more games and it can be different. But we spoke about the six points in the two home games against West Brom and Hull.

“Now we get another opportunity in two weeks to play Liverpool and then Manchester United – the two teams above us.

“If we would like to do something more special this season then we need to beat them.”
