FOOTBALL- Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is seeking legal advice after his former Everton boss revealed that a voodoo message influenced his decision to leave the club for Chelsea.

Everton's major shareholder Farhad Moshiri said Lukaku left the club in the summer and joined Manchester United. “He said he was on a pilgrimage in Africa or somewhere and he had a voodoo and got the message that he needs to go to Chelsea,” said Moshiri.

Lukaku's representative said his decision has nothing to do with voodoo. “He distances himself from these beliefs and this statement and will now see what judicial steps can be taken in relation to them.”

“Romelu is very catholic and voodoo is not part of his life or his beliefs,” the representative added. 

“He simply had no faith in Everton and no confidence in Mr Moshiri’s project. That is why he did not want to sign on any condition. He wanted to make the next step in his career and wanted the security to be able to leave.”
