‘If I’m Lukaku I’m going nuts’: Rio Ferdinand defends under-fire Chelsea striker

Lineker had insisted that it was up to Lukaku’s teammates to bring him into the game, saying: ‘When I played, if I wasn’t getting much of the ball, if I wasn’t getting service, I would be hammering people.’
‘I agree with Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer by the way, if anyone saw their comments, if I’m Lukaku I’m going nuts,’ Ferdinand said on Vibe with Five.
‘[I would be saying] get me that ball, get wide and cross me the ball, play the ball in behind when you get the opportunity, play to my strengths.
