Romelu Lukaku has issued an apology to Chelsea supporters, his manager and his teammates while acknowledging that he was at fault for the controversial comments he made in his interview with Sky Sport Italia. The Belgian was left out of Chelsea's squad in their thrilling 2-2 game on Sunday.

Romelu Lukaku arrived at Chelsea from Inter over the summer amidst much fanfare for a reported fee of £97.5 million. The Belgian striker had undergone spells at Everton, Manchester United and Inter as he drastically improved his game and turned into one of the most lethal finishers in the game.

The 28-year-old has made a decent start to life at Stamford Bridge as he has scored seven goals and registered two assists across all competitions. Lukaku made some controversial comments where he suggested that he was unhappy with Thomas Tuchel's tactics and that he hoped to someday return to Inter due to his strong connection with the club.

The Belgian suffered the consequences for his words as he was left out of the Blues encounter with Liverpool which finished 2-2. Tuchel revealed that everything was fine now after having a sincere conversation with the 28-year-old yesterday and Lukaku has now issued an apology for his words.

“To the fans, I'm sorry for the upset that I caused. You guys know the connection that I have with this club since my teenage years, so I totally understand you guys being upset. Obviously, it's up to me now to restore your trust and I'll do my best to show commitment every day on the training ground and in the games, trying to make sure that we win games,” Lukaku said in an interview with the club’s website.

“And also to the manager, I apologise, and also to my team-mates and the board, because I think it was not the right moment also and I want to move forward from this and make sure that we start winning football games and that I perform for the team in the best manner," he added.
