The grass isn’t always greener on the other side

The way Romelu Lukaku left Inter last summer stung deeply into the hearts of the Nerazzurri, but the Belgian has now made some amends to the club he called home for two years. Lukaku proclaimed his love for Inter in a new interview with Sky Sports, apologizing for the way he left Milano in August. He even went so far as to say he wants to return to the peninsula, as the situation at Chelsea isn’t to the 28-year-old’s liking.

Here’s the transcript, as translated by Fabrizio Romano.

“Physically I am fine. But I’m NOT happy with the situation at Chelsea. Tuchel has chosen to play with another system - I won’t give up, I’ll be professional. I am not happy with the situation but I am professional - and I can’t give up now”.

“I think everything that happened last summer was not supposed to happen like this... how I left Inter, the way I left the club, how I communicated with Inter fans - this bothers me because it was not the right time”

“Now it’s the right time to share my feelings. I have always said that I have Inter in my heart: I know I will RETURN to Inter, I really hope so. I am in love with Italy, this is right moment to talk and let people know what really happened”

“I really hope from bottom of my heart to return to Inter not at the end of my career, but when I’m still at top level to win more together”.

“I want apologize to the Inter fan, timing of my words was wrong: what you did for me will remain forever”.
