It seemed unrealistic and impossible to complete. Of course, we talk about him regularly because he is a fantastic player and a profile at Dortmund, who is a big rival for us in the Champions League. Would it please me to have Lukaku and Haaland play together? I have no problem talking about it (smile). I don't think we're really that close to having it. But we'll see what will happen in the next few weeks ”.

“ I fell into a trap ”

They gave me this award and asked me about a player. Normally I never, ever talk about other players, because I just never do. We didn't care more or less and I should have known. Because by wanting to laugh about it and joking about a duet with Romelu in October, it's like we've made an offer. That was the context, but I should have known it, “admitted the Chelsea coach in remarks reported by Goal.
