Belgium boss Martinez thinks lukaku took some unfair blame at Manchester.




with a $99m deal but they never happy with his performance at the club and he was receiving so much criticism which


thinks wasn’t fair but Belgium’s head coach says he likes seeing Lukaku playing at another club.

 “My relationship with Romelu was from a young player when he came to Everton on loan.” Martinez told


“Then we made a massive effort to get him on a permanent basis and he was the transfer record at that time.

“You can see the player going through phases, good moments, bad moments, but what we’ve seen with Romelu is he’s never lost his outstanding quality which is scoring goals.

“Now we’ve seen a real maturity in his play.

“The time he had at Manchester United, he was so desperate to win trophies and he took a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and probably took a lot of blame, in my eyes, very unfairly.

“But going to Italy, he’s in the middle of a new project, he’s taken that responsibility and those difficulties he had in England in a good way.

“The player we have now is a player in the best maturity moment of his career.”
