Romelu Lukaku says he always wanted to play for Inter and names his favourite players in the Nerazzurri’s history.
The Belgian forward moved to the Stadio Meazza from Manchester United in 2019.
“I’ve always wanted to play for Inter. I am incredibly proud to wear this shirt. It’s something great. I am an Interista,” the 27-year-old said in an interview published on Inter’s match programme ahead of this evening’s clash against Roma.
“I’ve always known I would have had a special relationship with Antonio Conte. When I joined Inter, I texted him saying: ‘I am arriving.’”
The former Manchester United man picked his best goal with Inter so far.
“The one I scored against Milan, there are all my characteristics there. The run, the power, and the precision. And it has a profound meaning for me and our season,” the forward said.
“We won the title because of our exceptional team spirit,” he continued.
“I live for my family and to make other people happy. The joy of Inter fans is also mine.”
Last but not least, Lukaku named his favourite Inter players of all time.
“Julio Cesar was extraordinary, with excellent technical skills and great charisma. Then Maicon had speed and technique.
“As for Adriano, I know all his goals by heart. Eto’os determination and class have inspired me, and Ronaldo, the phenomenon, had football in his destiny.”
