Adolphine is also said to have encouraged him to refuse a new deal with the Toffees and then choose Manchester United over Chelsea. As a result, if the Blues want to keep their star frontman, they’ll have to keep his parents happy.

5. They survived in the face of poverty:

They went through some difficult times. Even after much suffering, they were unable to provide for the family’s fundamental demands. She used to give her sons milk that had been diluted with water. They had to put in a lot of effort to raise their sons.

Coming from a low-income background to this position today is a cause for serious concern. Today, his tenacity and hard work have earned him a place in the family and in his country.

6. More football, less books at age 5:

Romelu became addicted to football by playing it wherever he could find a ball, a can of soda, or even a video game. Despite his passion for football, he didn’t excel much in the classroom. He had such a strong passion for the game.

Romelu’s father registered him in a local club, Rupel Boom when he was five years old because of his exceptional passion for football.

Romelu outpaced the other children in the team during his four years at the club. During one of his games, scouts from another club, Lierse, noticed him.

7. He was bullied as a kid at school:

His peers did not treat him properly when he was in school. He only had one close companion. His peers used to refer to him as “Big black boy” at school. When his pals teased him, he was devastated.

He was more sensitive at the time when he was called Big Black Boy. Thankfully, all that bullying was transformed into positivity and has given Lukaku the mental strength and ability that has defined his career up till now.

9. Never say any bad word about Lukaku’s mum, ELSE!:

Former Manchester United teammates Romelu and Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a heated discussion during the Coppa Italia quarter-final. According to reports, Zlatan intervened in the dispute by bringing Lukaku’s mother into the mix.

As a result, Zlatan received a red card, while Lukaku was suspended for challenging Zlatan to a fight. His mother was greatly annoyed by the occurrence. As a result of the tragedy, Adolphine instructed her son to win the match at any cost in order to avenge Zlatan.

“Go do your voodoo sh*t, you little donkey. Go do your voodoo sh*t. Call your mother!,” were Ibrahimovic’s words to Lukaku during the fight.

Angered at the fact that his mother was mentioned, Lukaku responded angrily; “Well, let’s go inside you b****. We will see,”.
