Belgium stars Kompany and Courtois laugh off Romelu Lukaku retirement suggestions






Could Lukaku really retire in 2020?

Belgium stars Vincent Kompany and Thibaut Courtois have laughed off suggestions from Romelu Lukaku that he could retire from the national team in 2020.

The Belgian striker has been very impressive for his national team over the past few years.

Though, he shook the media when he recently suggested that he could retire from international football in just two years.

He would be only 27-years old after the 2020 Euro’s but he recently explained that ‘After the Euros, I think I’ll stop.”

Now, Belgium’s biggest stars have laughed off those suggestions.

Vincent Kompany and Thibaut Courtois have been speaking about those comments and the former has suggested he won’t have many problems convincing him not to retire.

‘I can hardly imagine that I’m going to have a lot of trouble convincing him to go even further,’ explained Kompany, as quoted by the Metro. 



‘Young players sometimes say things that they later regret. ‘We all laughed at it.

‘When Romme stops, I will pick him up at his home in Manchester and I will take him to Brussels. 

‘He does not live too far from me.’

Courtois also followed the same opinion.

He doubted the legitimacy of Lukaku’s comments but did admit it would be a ‘very unfortunate’ if he did retire.

‘Do I believe him? Not really, but you never know, of course,’ Courtois explained.

‘An attacker like Lukaku works very hard and has little rest. That weighs in time.

‘But if we were to win the European Championship, I can not imagine that he will stop. It would be very unfortunate.’
