Centre-backs need to be able to defend and Lukaku isn't able to defend?

Also you don't need to be fast. But you do as a wing back...

You need to be fast to play centre-back if you are playing on the same flank as Lukaku and he's your wing-back  :razz:

We've played Basta and Patric as centre-backs in recent times so the idea of moving a wing-back to left centre-back isn't radical, but Basta has played in Italy for 10 years and Patric was a defensive-midfielder earlier in his career so both players have experience if not characteristics which enable them adapt to the role.

You could certainly try and convert Lukaku into a centre-back. Strength and pace won't go amiss and in time he could get his head around the role and what's required, but at that point he could very well be 40 and no longer have the strength or pace that is required. Also, he could probably do with being taller and he's not going to grow - Radu's small for a centre-back, but he has a good 6 or 7cm on Lukaku.

You can probably change any player's position and role with time, but I guess you have to do it if you think it improve the player and therefore the team. I don't really see how Lukaku would be a better centre-back than wing-back.

Lukaku as LCB?  Murgia would be better, even Felipe ...   :whistle:

Really bad news for the upcoming 2 EL games.  Di Gennaro out for at least 3 weeks.

This means more extra effort needed from our starters.  Really unfortunate if you ask me.
