Everton manager Ronald Koeman has assured star striker Romelu Lukaku the Goodison Park faithful will not turn on him after the Belgium global told the club he will not immediately sign a new deal.
The Belgian forward has been in the spotlight lately with the new contract shenanigans that he's been embroiled in, and Koeman wants to ensure there's no distractions for the player as Everton try to keep the pressure up on the top six teams.
Ronald Koeman is unworried about the prospect of Everton fans jeering Romelu Lukaku today - and insists they can reach the Champions League in 2018.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that he is concerned about the calf injury sustained by midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin during his side's 4-0 win over Hull City this afternoon.

"If I look to this season so far, I think we can make the next step next season", Koeman said.
BBC reports that Lukaku started the week by turning down the most lucrative contract offer in Everton's history before ending it at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts.
However Koeman still believes that catching Jose Mourinho's Manchester United, who are in sixth and seven points ahead of Koeman's men, will prove Everton's ambition to join the Premier League's elite.
The 23-year-old's goals at Goodison Park on Saturday also took him to 81 in the competition and he is one of only four players to pass the 80 mark before turning 24. "You can't do it one year".
