Romelu Lukaku hasn't had the best of times at Stamford Bridge. While in his earlier stint from 2011 to 2014, the Belgian was criticised for his underwhelming performance on the field, this time his outspokenness has landed him in hot water.
Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku's apology for his controversial interview that resulted in a fall-out with manager Thomas Tuchel has infuriated a section of Chelsea supporters.
On Tuesday, the former Premier League champions posted a video on the micro-blogging site Twitter in which Lukaku could be seen making an apology to the club's admirers.

"To the fans, I'm sorry for the upset that I caused. You guys know the connection that I have with this club since my teenage years so I totally understand you guys being upset", Lukaku said in the video. "Obviously, it's up to me now to restore your trust and I'll do my best to show commitment every day on the training ground and trying to make sure we win games".

Lukaku's remorseful words came after the 28-year-old footballer stirred the pot by declaring that he wasn't happy with his role at Chelsea and wanted to return to his former club Inter Milan.
While a few Chelsea lovers declared him a "class act" for accepting his mistake, others were not so keen to forgive him as they accused him of disrespecting them.
Some netizens even made fun of his remarks by posting hilarious memes.
There was another section of users who labelled his apology "embarrassing" because he didn't apologise for what he said in his controversial interview.
Despite the fans' ire, Lukaku's apology seemed to have had the desired result on Tuchel as the Chelsea boss is set to end his star forward's exile from the team's starting XI.
