LONDON: Tipped as the next Didier Drogba, Chelsea new boy Romelu Lukaku is flattered to be compared to the powerhouse striker with whom he bears a striking resemblance in playing style. Drafted into Chelsea’s squad from Anderlecht, the 18-year-old is now learning all he can from Drogba. “To be compared with Didier is a very big honour, for me” said Lukaku. “I am not here to replace Didier, just to play for Chelsea. I hope he’ll stay as long as possible so I can continue to play with him and learn from him.”
