Manager Ronald Koeman’s comments that striker Romelu Lukaku might need to leave Everton to realise his potential have been completely “taken out of context”, the club’s majority shareholder and co-owner Farhad Moshiri has said.
Koeman was quoted as saying that “his (Lukaku’s) potential is greater and higher than Everton as a final destination” by Belgian newspaper HLN on Wednesday.
“It has been taken out of context,” Moshiri told talkSPORT.
Lukaku, who has scored seven of Everton’s 15 Premier League goals this season, was linked in the British media with a move away from Goodison Park during the close season but Koeman convinced the 23-year-old to withdraw his transfer request.
“Ronald Koeman said he believes Romelu will develop into one of the best strikers in the world in the next two to three years and wouldn’t be out of place at his old club, Barcelona. It is just player-coach talk,” Moshiri added.
