'Disrespectful' Lukaku urged to apologise

English Premier League

Romelu Lukaku has been urged to apologise to the Chelsea supporters for his 'disrespectful' comments about about being unhappy at Stamford Bridge.

Sky Sports Italia released an interview with the Belgian striker on Thursday where he opened up about his unhappiness and not agreeing with Thomas Tuchel's new formation.

Former Manchester Winger Trevor Sinclair was not happy with the Belgian's comments and feels he may let some of his younger teammates down.

"I'm in absolute shock. I was at Chelsea's win against Villa and I watched him in the warm-up," Sinclair told talkSPORT.

"I was intrigued because he was out for a while and wondered what his mood was going to be like – he was smiling, laughing, he looked like he was loving being back in the Chelsea squad.

"The second-half performance cemented what I was thinking. He looked happy, he played happy, got a goal, an elite striker's goal and then the third goal where he won the penalty I thought was one of the best runs to earn a penalty from him I've seen in a long time.

"For him to come out with those comments, I think he should be apologising to the Chelsea fans. That's so disrespectful to the Chelsea fans.

"I think that's so disrespectful to the Chelsea manager. I'd be astounded if he hadn't had a conversation with Thomas Tuchel about this.

"He might not have got the answer he wanted but you don't come out in public and say this. I think it's disrespectful to his teammates and I think it's disrespectful to the owner.

"He's 28 years old. A lot of Chelsea's front line will look up to Lukaku, I think he's let them all down."
