Chelsea Striker Lukaku Praises Inter for Making Him ‘More Complete’

Returning Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku has praised Inter for making him a better striker of the ball, having come back to Stamford Bridge after a decade. The 28-year-old Belgian has developed into a mature player since first arriving on the Premier League stage as a teenager from Anderlecht.

He never really took off during his initial time at Stamford Bridge but now possesses a whole different outlook after having established himself as one of Europe’s most feared strikers.

Speaking to Chelsea’s official website, Lukaku praised his time in Serie A under former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, commenting: “I just feel more complete. I’ve tried to master what a striker needs. The two years in Italy helped me master all the facets of the game for a striker and now I’m ready.”

He also remarked on a notable distinction between the style of play in Serie A and English Premier League.

“Italy is tactically and technically a better league but here in England, it’s all about the intensity. That’s what makes the difference,” he said

Lukaku is poised to make his first appearance since his move to Chelsea when the Blues take on Arsenal next weekend. The Nerazzurri are still on the lookout for the star striker’s replacement.
