Belgium international Romelu Lukaku has revealed that he is “not happy” with Chelsea, which he returned to this summer from Inter.
The German coach Thomas Touchel has not used Lukaku due to injury and has been away for more than a month, returning and missing again due to the Covid-19. “After two seasons in Italy where I worked a lot with coaches and nutritionists, I feel like I’m in good physical condition,” Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia on Thursday.”But I’m not happy with this situation, it’s normal. I think the coach decided to play in a different way so I have to not give up and continue working and be professional.”Lukaku starred for Inter last season by scoring 24 goals and contributed to10 assists to lead his team to the domestic title for the first time since 2010.
Chelsea paid $131 million for Lukaku’s services, having spent three seasons at Stamford Bridge at the start of his career before playing for Everton and Manchester United.”I think it’s time for me to talk about it because Inter still have a special place in my heart, I’m going back to play there someday and I really hope so,” Lukaku said.”I adore Italy, it’s time for me to talk about what really happened without offending some people because it’s not my nature. I would like to apologize to Inter supporters because I think the way I left Italy should have been different.”
Lukaku scored his ninth goal of the season in various competitions when he opened the scoring for Brighton in the Premier League before Welbeck equalised in stoppage time.
