After his move to Inter Milan in the summer transfer window, Didier Drogba has backed Romelu Lukaku to become one of the best strikers in the world.
Lukaku joined Inter on transfer deadline day from Manchester United after being handed limited playing time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Only Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Wayne Rooney, and Harry Kane have been the youngest players to reach the prestigious 100 goals Club, with Lukaku scoring his 100th aged 24 years and 322 days.
Drogba heaped praise on Lukaku while tipping him for success, "Not least when it seems like the whole globe is against Lukaku. But that criticism shows that Romelu is world top. Only later will the supporters realize how good Romelu was when they look at his achievements.
"Now they are used to their phenomenal performances - success is used, also for the fans -, but there comes a time when that is no longer the case. And then only the memory remains. (pauses for a moment) Ah, that is not immediately, though. Romelu is still not at its top, has a lot of progression. He is only getting better."
