Chelsea defender, Antonio Rudiger, has come up with a new name for Romelu Lukaku ahead of his side’s UEFA Super Cup final tie with Villarreal on Wednesday.
Rudiger shared his nickname for Lukaku while speaking at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday in Belfast ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Villarreal.
Lukaku’s transfer to Chelsea will soon be officially announced after he had his medical in Milan on Monday before flying to London to complete the deal.
Speaking on Lukaku, Rudiger branded the Belgium international as a ‘beast’.
“You can see in his body type that he is a beast,” Rudiger said.
“He’s someone who is very strong and I think also he showed it in Italy over the past two years. He did very well over there. Also for his national team.
“He is a goalscorer and for me a top striker.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea will begin their 2021/22 Premier League campaign against Crystal Palace this weekend.
