[Everton forward Romelu Lukaku talks about his football heroes] Drogba, Anelka, Brazilian Ronaldo, Adriano at his peak at Inter was unbelievable. The step overs from Brazilian Ronaldo, every now and then I’ll do a step over real quick and have a shot. Anelka, his off-the-ball runs, I love Thierry Henry as well, for me those two had the best off-the-ball runs in behind I’ve ever seen. Drogba’s leadership, mentality and his big goals, his big, big goals, and Adriano’s power on the pitch. I’ve never seen something like that, it’s very sad that he ended like he did but for me, at his peak, he took the striker’s dimension to another level

[Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku talks about Thierry Henry’s influence on him as assistant coach of Les Diables Rouges] It’s not easy with him, he’s very demanding. I hadn’t experienced that before. Even when I make a good pass, if the ball bobbles a little bit, he pulls me up on it. I think he sees in me characteristics he also had when he was younger. That’s why he’s so intransigent with me. Thanks to him, I’m more intelligent in my movement, and so I’m caught offside less. He’s also teaching me things about finishing, controlling the ball and how I see the game. Back in the day, he made ten assists a season, I’d like to emulate him

[New Manchester United signing Romelu Lukaku talks about the reasoning behind his new number] I always asked my mother what number, and I used to play with the No 10 because my mother’s birthday is on 10 October, so it’s the tenth month of the year. That’s why I played with No 10. I asked for the No 9 because I’m a striker. Strikers play with No 9. It’s a nice number, and I asked the permission of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I want to thank him, as well, for allowing me to wear that number

[Romelu Lukaku has told Thierry Henry that he aims to break the Frenchman’s record of 175 Premier League goals] Now I’m talking to Thierry Henry saying: ‘I’m coming for you on 175!’ I’m laughing saying it to him but, deep down, inside he knows I’m dead serious!

[Romelu Lukaku on Zlatan Ibrahimovic who taught a valuable lesson while at Manchester United] I remember one training session. Because we were both strikers, we were never on the same team and, at one point, there was a 50/50 challenge. He went full-on against me! That is why he changed me. It was an eye-opener. The guy had to fight to be in the position he is in
