Lukaku is key for Inter to win the Scudetto after a decade as he scores against Cagliari. The Belgian has come a long way from his first match for Inter back in 2019. And he owes a large part of his success to the Nerazzurri boss. Moreover, Conte put in the good word for him at Chelsea. However, when that didn’t go through, he was quite upset with the management.
After playing for Anderlecht and a rather disappointing farewell to Man United, Lukaku has come a long way. In fact, he has improved immensely at Inter. The Belgian has scored 21 goals so far this season, which makes him the top scorer of the team. On top of that, he is just 4 goals away from Cristiano Ronaldo who currently has the most goals this season. Nonetheless, the 27- year old has played a huge role in Inter’s current position and success in Serie A. And he has also helped in breaking Juventus’s nine-year dominance in Serie A.
Lukaku is key for Inter as Inter move a step closer to Serie A win
As Inter move ahead, 11 points clear of AC Milan, there is only one man to praise. Lukaku scored the only goal against Cagliari that helped Inter maintain their lead with better points. Lukaku and Martinez have been an essential pair for Inter. The two have maintained a great partnership and have a great understanding amongst one another. In the match against Sassuolo, Lukaku scored the first goal with an exceptional header. But, he also provided an assist for the second goal scored by Martinez.
Lukaku’s awareness and decision-making ability have helped him a lot on and off the field. He has agreed that after Man United, he only needed a change of environment to bring out this side of him. The awareness and the right mentor. And Conte played that role.
