Gary Neville complimented Romelu Lukaku for being ‘genuine and honest’ in confessing his dissatisfaction with Chelsea, but believes the £98m striker has let the club down.
Lukaku was left out of Chelsea’s squad for Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool by manager Thomas Tuchel.
It came after the Belgian gave an interview in Italy in which he expressed his dissatisfaction with his status at Stamford Bridge and expressed his love for previous club Inter Milan.
‘We have to praise Romelu Lukaku in some respects for being bold enough, or whatever you want to call it, to come out and speak the truth,’ Neville said on his Sky Sports podcast.
‘I’ve called for players to be more authentic, to be more honest.
‘He is experienced. We have to imagine he knows those words will travel back and the impact those words would have.’
