Romelu Lukaku: The journey from extreme poverty to the fame

France has defeated world number three team Belgium and has shown the way out of the FIFA World Cup 2018. However, some of the Belgian players in this FIFA World Cup showed such charisma that fans became crazy. One of these is Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.

In this FIFA World Cup, Romelu Lukaku has scored 4 goals in the so far, and now he will have the chance to prove himself again in the battle for the third position against England.

The credit for reaching the semi-finals after three decades goes to Lukaku to a great extent. Today, Lukaku is one of the world’s most famous footballers, but it was not always so.

Lukaku was from a very poor family. When he was young, then arranging one time meal was a difficult task for his family. Due to not paying the electricity bill, this player has spent many nights in the dark.

Things were so bad that Lukaku used to drink milk mixed with water. His family used to borrow the ration that time.

Apart from poverty, Lukaku had to face many other difficulties. Lukaku was very long in his young age, because of which he was always questioned on his stature. That’s why Lukaku always used to carry his birth certificate.

“My father was a professional footballer, but his family could never get to the best of facilities because of not getting success,” Lukaku told in an interview.

‘I came to know about my family situation when I was 6-year old, when I saw my mothe mixing water with milk.’

This changed his Life:

After seeing all this, Lukaku decided that now he will become a footballer, and he will also get success unlike his father. With his hard work, today Lukaku plays for one of the most famous football clubs Manchester United.

Earlier, he has shown his talent in clubs such as Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion and Everton as well. Lukaku, who faced the extreme financial crisis once, is now one of the most expensive footballers in Europe. He earns INR 2.27 crore per week now.
