Joe Cole believes Romelu Lukaku is a leader in the Chelsea dressing room

Chelsea legend and ex England star, Joe Cole has heaped praises on Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku and he believes that the Belgian is a great leader at the club. Lukaku joined Chelsea from Inter Milan during the summer for the second time in his career after his first move from his native country 10 years ago.

Lukaku has been of instant impact under Thomas Tuchel as he has fired in 4 goals in 4 appearances since his return. The player scored again yesterday as Chelsea clinched a hard earned 1:0 victory over Zenit St Petersburg, kicking off their UEFA Champions League trophy defence.

Joe Cole on Romelu Lukaku: "By all accounts Lukaku is a bit of a leader in the dressing room and that’s just like Didier Drogba. Didier was a born leader, a real man’s man. Everyone loved him. We talk about Terry and Lampard being leaders, but Drogba was every bit as much a leader as them. Lukaku is of that type."

Cole also likened Lukaku to Drogba who is considered as the best striker in Chelsea's history and one of the finest the English Premier League has ever seen. Lukaku will look to build his image at Stamford Bridge and make up for his failed first stint at the club.
