Martinez: Lukaku is the perfect player for Everton

Published on: 30 November 2015

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has heaped praise of Toffees striker Romelu Lukaku, describing the Belgian international as the 'perfect' player for the Merseyside club.

Lukaku notched his 10th goal of the season in Everton's 3-3 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday.

"I think it has always been the case that Rom, with the potential he has, is perfect for us. He is a striker who can do it all," Martinez said.

"He has the old-fashioned traits — he can have his back to play, the strength, the power. But he can also run with the ball and is a clinical finisher. You can see from his scoring record what he is. That is why we made a huge investment in him.'

"With Rom what you get is a reliable footballer who always presents an incredible threat.

"But he is still only 22 so he cannot really be compared to anyone. There are not many players who at his age have achieved what he has achieved."
