Lukaku admits leaving Inter was a “mistake”

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that Romelu Lukaku made a mistake when leaving Inter Milan for Chelsea last year. The Belgian had a miserable time at Chelsea after a stellar title-winning campaign the year before for Inter.

That all led to where we are today, Rom is back on a one-year loan deal that is assumed to be made permanent at some point in the future.

During a recent event for the new Inter kits, Rom was asked what his biggest challenge in football was.

“The one right now. You know, I left, it was a mistake, didn’t I, Nico? What we do in the locker room and on the pitch, the relationships we have with each other, that’s really important. My hugs with Lautaro? I needed some love this morning! It’s also right for people to see that our team is really united.”

He also had some kind words for Inter as a club as he feels that they have given him a special opportunity to play at a higher level.

“Inter have given me the opportunity to play at a higher level in my career. I am really happy to wear this jersey, we hope to continue to grow like in the past years. We have to continue like this if we want to reach the goal.”

Something we can all agree on is a good redemption story is always fun. So let’s simply win the league this year.
