Romelu Lukaku once admitted: “I did not succeed at Old Trafford because I had no motivation to play.” In addition to the motivation, the striker born in 1973 also lacked the necessary confidence of a star in the Premier League.
With a height of 1.90m and weighing 94kg, Romelu Lukaku has a physical advantage compared to the strikers in the Premier League. Leaving the Belgian football field, Romelu had experience playing English football for Chelsea, West Bromwich, Everton, San Siro which made MU scouts interested. Obviously, Lukaku has certain advantages to shine at Old Trafford but the unbelievable misses made him a once-time “comedian” in the eyes of MU fans.
3 years at MU, the number of appearances in the Premier League for this Belgian star is 34, 32 and 0, respectively, with the goals of 16.12 and 0. Meanwhile, 4 years in Everton the number of matches played in Premier League and 31, 36, 37, 37 and goals 15, 10, 18, 25. The numbers make MU fans disappointed to remember this star. 96 matches in all competitions, 42 goals. Those who like to talk about statistics and efficiency in the process can look here to conclude Lukaku’s time at MU.
Leaving Old Trafford, to come to Inter Milan at Seri A, San Siro after 25 rounds, Romelu Lukaku had 17 goals. Up to this point, he has scored 23 goals and 5 assists after 35 appearances for Inter Milan. In the summer of 2019, M.U sold Lukaku to Inter Milan even though he could not find a replacement. M.U has done everything.
Norwegian coach Ole even stressed that M.U will sell Lukaku even when there are no strikers left. “I’m short of strikers, that’s the truth I have to accept, but I’m happy with the decision to sell him to San Siro,” he said.
“We have many potential players who deserve the opportunity to play. Meanwhile, Lukaku no longer wants to contribute to the club. When a player doesn’t want to stay, it’s best to let him go. I don’t want to talk too much about this. I respect Lukaku and that is the right time for him to leave the team.
What makes this bulky striker promote his value and help Inter Milan ranked 3rd in Seri A (after Juve and Lazio). Firstly, coach Antonio Conte has liberated Lukaku from the center of the plug, sharing this task with Lautaro Martinez to avoid the heavy accompanying of defenders Seri A. The main partner with him in diagram 3 -5-2 of Antonio Conte’s coach at Inter, Lautaro Martinez also has 16 goals. Regarding the coordination of the two in the 2019-20 season, the Belgian player assessed.
While at Chelsea, Conte coach missed Lukaku twice by the interruption of Jose Mourinho and Man Utd. As a professional, Conte appreciated him- that was indisputable. The Italian teacher is showing himself right when he signed Lukaku a 5-year contract with a salary of £ 300,000 / week (more than 325,000 euros/week).
Rescue for both sides
One thing that makes Lukaku easily integrate with the new team when Inter Milan has taken over both Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez. In the role of loading the two strikers, midfielder Ashley Young is doing very well his task, while coming on the bench many times Alexis Sanchez has trimmed the ball for him to score.
Lukaku still needs to complete the middle piece with M.Vecino, M.Brozovic or N.Barella midfielders right after him, as well as soon find the thunder header of his own brand. But it can be said, so far the departure from MU is bringing good things for both, 78 million euros is the record amount in the history of Serie A San Siro transfer has promoted value. At Old Trafford, he can only be a grassroots comedian, but to Inter, he is on his way to becoming the super striker of the new team.
