Chelsea stars 'want' Lukaku punished

English Premier League

The Chelsea dressing room have reportedly made their feelings known on Romelu Lukaku after crisis talks were held on Monday. 

Thomas Tuchel reportedly met with the Belgian forward earlier this week to discuss a way forward after his interview with Sky Italia, in which the striker appeared to criticise the manager’s tactical approach. 

According to The Express, the conversation is said to have had a positive outcome after the striker showed remorse for his actions which could lead to the player's reintroduction to the match-day squad.  

However, it appears that the German head coach could have a new problem.

The Daily Mail are claiming that the Blues' dressing room is divided as some stars are keen to see Lukaku face formal punishment for his recent outburst. 

The striker is said to be a popular figure in the dressing room though, with some players not believing it is necessary that this incident results in further controversy. 

Despite Lukaku seemingly taking responsibility for his actions, there are concerns from within his camp that it will take a while for this unsavoury chapter to reach a conclusion.
