Romelu Lukaku has struggled since his arrival in the summer.
The Blues won the Club World Cup by defeating Palmeiras 2-1 this weekend at Abu Dhabi.
Lukaku’s performance in this competition was crucial in these two games.
He endured a difficult season at Chelsea and club legend Didier Drogba believes the Belgian striker will prove his worth.
“He took his responsibility to talk and put a bit more pressure on himself and delivered tonight, scoring an important goal,” Drogba said.
“Obviously, every player always has something to prove and will always want to do better but he’s there, big game, he scored the goal to give us the lead.
“I’m really happy because I spoke [in the past] and after that I put pressure on myself. But I spoke because I knew I could handle this pressure. Maybe I needed that as well to perform and it’s good to see that his mentality is being positive.
“He’s a goalscorer, he has done that before and he’s having a difficult moment, but bouncing back this kind of trophy will bring his confidence back.
“I think he will [come good]. He put himself under a certain pressure because coming back to the club where your start was difficult and you come back because you want to prove a point, but he’s winning and I think he’s going to make it.”
