Lukaku Claims Inter “got him out of s**” as he was in “a deep hole” at Man United.
Romelu Lukaku has appeased furious Inter Milan fans for his decision to leave Italy as he admitted the Serie A champions “got me out of s**” when he was “in a deep hole” at Manchester United.
The Nerazzurri had offered the Belgian a lifeline in 2019 following his misery at the Old Trafford and supporters are upset that the 28-year-old Lukaku has not repaid that faith having joined Stamford Bridge this summer.
Fans of the Italian Champions defaced a mural of Lukaku last month with the words “sell out traitor” with supporters still showing disappointment that he chose to leave despite maintaining that he would stick around.
Consequently, Lukaku has sought to defuse tensions between himself and Inter supporters. He insists that he is grateful for the opportunity Inter offered him two years ago although Chelsea’s interests in him was a head-turner.
His latest revelations comes after he begged Inter fans to understand his decision to move back to Chelsea where he was not afforded enough game time to prove his quality at Stamford Bridge.
He said, “Dear Inter fans, Thank you. Thank you for loving me as one of your own. Thank you for making me and my family feel at home at Milan. Thank you for the unconditional support and love on a daily basis. Thank you for the unconditional support and love on a daily basis. Thank you for motivating me even more after the first season”.
“When I came to Inter, I immediately felt that I would do well for this club. The love and reception I first received at Malpensa airport was the start of a beautiful story. I made it my mission to never let you down every time I wore the Inter shirt”.
“I gave 100% in every training session and every game so that I could make you proud”.
“I only realized that Chelsea were curious when they made their third offer. First they offered £85m then £90m plus Alonso. Then they offered £94.2m plus Zappacosta, but Inter said no.”
“I didn’t want to go behind Inter’s back. They got me out of the S***. I was in a deep hole at Manchester United”.
“After training, I went to Inzaghi’s office. I didn’t want to ruin the atmosphere because I was no longer with my head in Milan. So I asked him to please find and agreement”.
“I hope you guys understand my decision to move on to Chelsea. It’s a chance that I always dreamed of.”
