After yesterday’s preview, here is the full interview that Romelu Lukaku gave to Dazn:
“I don’t care about the top scorers, I only think about the Scudetto: we are at Inter, we don’t play for individual prizes”
Who was the first person you told you would be returning to Inter?
“Lautaro. We talked to each other on Instagram, I had changed my number. And then on WhatsApp. He was one of the first I spoke to, then Dimarco, Bastoni and the others”.
Where would you be if you hadn’t met Inter?
“The season at Chelsea has given me extra motivation to do even better than before. In a year everyone has forgotten what I am capable of on the pitch, it is a kind of anger that I have inside of me. All together we hope to do better. last year and to take something home “.
Why and where did you go wrong in leaving?
“So many things. Before when I left, I wanted to make this rematch at Chelsea. They had been my team for 11 years, I had the opportunity to go and be a protagonist but it wasn’t like that. In March when I learned that “it was the opportunity to come back here, I didn’t say anything but we managed to get me back, we did a great job with the club. I think after the end of the season, I thought a lot, at Chelsea it was difficult and I had no doubts,” I wanted to return “.
What work did you do mentally after realizing that you would return to Inter?
“To fit into the team as best I can, Inter plays differently than when I was there. The important thing is to fit in well, understand the coach’s form, I have had many contacts with Inter players, for me it’s like if I were in my second year and I never left. The players want to win more, every match is life or death and I like that. This team is even more united than before. “
Neither Brozo nor Barella made you pay for it?
“No, no, not yet. I had to sing and pay at the team dinner but that’s normal and that’s it.”
Did you find them the same as before?
“Better. Brozo has become even more leader and more open in communication than before, he complains a lot (laughs, ed). Barella is even more protagonist on the pitch, he made more assists last year, he also won the Italian Cup, Super Cup and the European Championship made him stronger “
Do you see Inter as the strongest?
“I’m not one who talks before the season, it doesn’t make sense. In the end, yes and we’ll see who is the strongest”
“I told him he has to do more (laughs, ed). We both told ourselves that we have to do better than before. If we want to achieve the team goals, we all have to do better because the other teams have become stronger. I saw immediately that his qualities can help me and my qualities can help him. We are not selfish strikers, I know when it is Lautaro’s day and not mine so I help him and we win and take her home. We want to win matches too. , we are always in opposite teams but we know that even together we can make a difference for the team in training. “
Have you already talked about celebrations?
“That remains, why do we have to change?”
“I don’t care, I just tell you that I am thinking of the Scudetto. The goals arrive but we are at Inter, we are playing for the Scudetto, not for individual prizes”
“The pressure is there in training. There is always someone who always provokes in training, this is the greatest pressure, the rest does not matter. winning Inter, the rest doesn’t matter. “
“When I arrived at Inter I became like this, because I arrived at Manchester United mentally for two difficult years. Physically I suffered because I was not there with my mind, I have to thank Conte because he made me a strong player but mentally he made me to really grow up, to never give up and to give it my all. This will stay with me until the end. “
“Inzaghi is like that too, that’s also why I came back. My brother spoke well to me about him, last year too I saw how he worked and I like it”
What Lukaku would you be without having met Inter?
“It was destiny to play for Inter, like for Anderlecht and Chelsea. It was what I imagined, Inter and Anderlecht and Everton gave me the opportunity to become the player I am. L ‘love of the people and the fans, for me and for my family, I thank them and I still apologize for how I left but I have to speak on the pitch “
Your most iconic image is the scream in the derby in an empty San Siro. Have you returned to take back the throne?
“I would like to take the trophy, I’m not here for myself but to help Inter win the Scudetto. After the crown (laughs, ed)”
