PSV attacker and Belgium international Johan Bakayoko had high praise for Roma striker Romelu Lukaku.

In an interview with Het Laatste Nieuws, Bakayoko – one of Belgium’s youngest team members – addressed the importance of Lukaku’s leadership for the rest of the team during the EURO 2024 qualifying playoffs.

“He’s like a big brother. Together with Carrasco, he was one of the first players to warmly welcome me to the national team,” said Bakayoko.

“Lukaku is a true leader, even verbally. Everyone in the locker room loves him. He always wants to win. This makes it easier for us to listen to him.”
