Romelu Lukaku Biography

Not everyone can claim that they knew what they wanted right from when they were young. Romelu Lukaku was one of the few exceptions. Even as a kid, he knew football was his bread and butter. He was inspired by his footballer father called Roger.

His football career reportedly started at the age of 5 when he joined Rupel Boom. He spent four seasons at the club until he was discovered by scouts from a Belgian pro league. The scouts from Lierse took Romelu with them and he played for the club between 2004 and 2006.

He was in impressive form in the club until it suffered relegation and the club sold him alongside 12 others to Anderlecht. He was a youth player for the club until he signed a professional contract in 2019. In the intervening years, he had joined other clubs and consolidated his place among the top footballers out there.
