Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku has confirmed that he wants to return to Inter permanently as he hopes to find a way for the Blues.


How was everything?

Romelu Lukaku returned to Inter in the summer on an €8m loan deal, a year after re-signing to the Blues for a record fee of £98m after the striker rescheduled a miserable 2021-22 season at Stamford Bridge which saw him in his purest form at all eight Premier League goals. The Belgian is now hoping Chelsea will let Inter buy him outright, as the player would like to continue at the San Siro after the 2022-23 campaign ends. Lukaku also appears to have confirmed that his initial exit from the Blues was the result of an issue with the club’s former head coach Tuchel.


What did Romelu Lukaku say?

The Belgian national team player said he spoke to the Blues about his relationship with the coach and decided to return to Inter. According to Romelu Lukaku, everything went very quickly and he is happy. Lukaku hopes to stay at Inter, they are everything to him, but he says they need to find a way with the Blues.


What will happen after that for Lukaku?

The Belgian has missed a big chunk of the season so far with a niggling hip injury. Romelu Lukaku appeared in just five matches for Inter, scoring twice, and only made 54 minutes for Belgium in the 2022 World Cup as his side crashed out of the group stage. Romelu Lukaku is set to return to action on January 4 when Inter host Serie A leaders Napoli.


And who does Lukau want for the Belgian national team as head coach?


Romelu expressed his hope that French manager Thierry Henry will be appointed as the new head coach of the Belgian national team.

Spanish coach Roberto Martinez parted ways with the Belgian national team after the team failed to get past the group stages of the 2022 World Cup. Thierry served as deputy to Roberto’s in Qatar and at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, while Romelu believes Henry should step up in the lead role due to his height in the dressing room.

Romelu Lukaku has said that Thierry Henry is the next Belgian coach for him. There is no doubt. Lukaku says openly that Henry will be the next coach. Thierry has the respect of all the players, he won everything. The Frenchman knows how to coach, he knows what they have to do to get there.

Henry knows the team, the league, the staff. For Romelu, he is the perfect coach for their national team. If it’s not Thierry then he doesn’t know who they’ll hire. But according to Romelu Lukaku, he doesn’t think Belgium should start from scratch.


A little about the topic

Romelu further acknowledged that Belgium’s so-called Golden Generation fell short of expectations, but striker doesn’t think it should count against Thierry. “Until this generation wins, we must keep trying to win,” added Lukaku. “Henry wants to win and I don’t think the federation will get a coach who wants to change everything and start from scratch. It’s not worth it for me.
