Ahead of the Group C clash between Inter and Bayern, we looked into the case of Romelo Lukaku. Even if he will not be able to play this meeting, the fault of an injury to the left thigh which has handicapped him for a little while, the case of the Belgian is symptomatic of modern players who need to feel important and loved in order to perform. The powerful striker has also returned to Belgium for treatment, as we announced to you a little earlier on Tuesday.
The most expensive recruit in Chelsea history, the Belgian disappointed during his time with the Blues. Especially since he pushed hard to come back, which made England cringe. The interviews where he explained his discomfort were not appreciated by the English club which fined him several times. The 29-year-old had also returned to this complicated season on the channel DAZN at the beginning of the month of August : “I think in a year everyone has forgotten the things I’m capable of on the pitch. It’s a kind of anger that I have inside of me. His loan in Italy is therefore a chance to revive a few weeks before the World Cup in Qatar.
A return to Italy to forget his time in England
For their part, Inter failed to retain their title last year. The Nerazzurri had to settle for 2nd place while their neighbor and rival AC Milan won the Scudetto. This failure must have given ideas to the Interist leaders who decided to repatriate the striker with an impressive physique. His stats are more than decent so far. In 3 small Serie A games, Romelo Lukaku scored 1 goal and made 1 assist. The Belgian is therefore for the moment in the same dynamic as his last season in Italy. He had finished this exercise with 44 matches played in all competitions for 30 achievements and 10 offerings. A far cry from his statistics with the Blues. Something to give hope to Inter supporters.
So even if the striker with an extraordinary physique will miss a great opportunity to show himself on the European scene this Wednesday evening, Big Rom feels happy in Milan and he still has time to put himself forward as he knows so well. do it. The Belgian will then be able to give everything on the pitch for a club that trusts him. It is a pivotal year for him knowing that his loan ends in June 2023 and that at that point he will have to return to Chelsea if his tenure at Inter is not deemed satisfactory. In any case, he still has time to recover from his injury, confirm his start to the season and put the observers of the Italian championship in his pocket.
