Headlines are being made throughout the press this morning after Jose Mourinho's outburst at comments made by Romelu Lukaku. Mourinho has urged the young Belgian to come clean about why he is on loan at Everton!

It seems that the player himself only has himself to blame here. Speaking to the BBC recently he said:
"It wasn't the fact that I wasn't wanted. I think I was wanted but I had to make a decision for myself and analyse what was the best thing for me."
As a result, when asked about the fact that Lukaku has been scoring goals and playing well for Everton and why he was allowed to leave Mourinho reacted by saying:
"I keep private my conversations with my players. There are things in our lives that we have to keep [quiet] for ethical reasons but, for example, one day recently he scored and said he hoped I was watching, like saying: 'Why did he let me go?' And that's what I'm telling him now: tell the country why you left. 
He has to say. Next time ask him why he left on loan one more season. From my angle, I'm happy he's scoring goals against our direct rivals, and he doesn't score against us because he can't. It's phenomenal that you have a player who, even not playing for you, is scoring goals against your opponents. From a practical point of view, that's very good.
But he's there and it's good for his evolution. It's good for Chelsea because he belongs to us for a long time and I'm happy with that. I just think that, if you keep quiet all the time, you keep quiet all the time. When you enjoy to speak, speak everything. Don't speak only half of it. It's a simple question: 'Why did you leave Chelsea?' Ask him."
It's believed in the media that Lukaku handed in a transfer request to Chelsea in light of the signing of Samuel Eto'o and asked to leave. This was rejected by the club and a compromise was reached between both parties for the player to leave the club on loan for a season.

I just wonder what YOU the Chelsea fan reading this, thinks of the situation back then. Was it right for him to request to leave and do you understand his reasoning?

What about the situation now? Do you think that we should have kept hold of Lukaku and left Samuel Eto'o alone or signed him and sold Demba Ba to Arsenal?

The only thing I would say is that I can understand where Jose is coming from. As he says he doesn't normally speak about private conversations with players but if he finds himself in a situation where the player is making the situation out to be something different, of course he will react.

In saying that, I understand from the players perspective as he feels he has done well enough last season to warrant a place in the team here.

I don't think we have heard the last of this, do you?

Carefree & KTBFFH!
