Recruited by Chelsea before returning to Inter Milan, Romelu Lukaku thought he could take advantage of hero status to take his revenge with the Blues… A resounding failure.
Recruited at a golden price for 113 million euros, Romelu Lukaku was ghostly in the colors of the Blues. With a delicate new season in the Premier League during which the Belgian scored only 15 goals and delivered 2 assists in 44 games played in all competitions, he did not convince the British team to keep him. In the midst of a crisis of confidence, the 29-year-old striker managed to extricate himself from his situation to sign his big return to Inter Milan. A real breath of fresh air for the Nerazzurri serial scorer.
» Inter, Anderlecht and Everton gave me the opportunity to become the player I am(he does not cite Chelsea or Manchester United, editor’s note). A lot of things went wrong. When I left (from Inter Milan, editor’s note), I wanted to take my revenge on Chelsea. I thought I would be a hero there, but that was not the case. I think that in a year, everyone has forgotten the things I can do on the pitch. The season at Chelsea gave me extra motivation to do even better than before. (…) It’s a kind of anger that I have in me. The team has it too, since they didn’t win anything last year, and all together, we hope to do better and win something. »“, said Romelu Lukaku in an interview with DAZN.
