Everton manager Ronald Koeman says Romelu Lukaku must respect his Everton contract despite rejecting a lucrative new deal.
The 23‑year‑old striker announced earlier this week that he will not sign a new five‑year contract thought to be worth around £140,000 a week.
Koeman says he is not afraid about the situation because Lukaku has more than two years on his contract.
Lukaku is the Premier League's joint‑top scorer with 19 goals this season.
Everton will face Hull City at 11pm Sunday in an English Premier League match this weekend.
