Rio Ferdinand has revealed the details of the conversation he had with Romelu Lukaku before he left Inter Milan for Chelsea Football Club.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that this was a conversation they had before Lukaku flew to London for his 97.5 million pounds deal.
Rio in an interview with FIVE YouTube channel said “I have spoken to him [Romelu Lukaku] recently and he’s a hungry man.
He continued : “He has not confirmed to me that he is signing for Chelsea, but he just said this season, he is hungry.
“I just think this guy, a lot of greatness comes through having fuel and what I mean by that is having doubters and wanting to prove them wrong.
“He has got a whole stadium full at Manchester United who doubted him, all the fan base at Old Trafford doubted him. A lot of people were not too dissatisfied when he left.
“He will be sitting there and looking in the diary to see when that Old Trafford game is and he will want to unload.” ALSO
