Lukaku opens up on injury issues and Inter return

Romelu Lukaku opens up on the critical injury problems that kept him out for most of the season. The Belgian striker admitted that he did not face a challenge like this in his entire career. After his return from Chelsea to Inter on a loan deal, the Nerazzurri fans were over the moon. However, their joy was short-lived, as Lukaku incurred a serious thigh injury. The early diagnosis said that he will be out for a few games, but the extent of the injury was unclear as Lukaku was out for months.

Lukaku revealed that he tore the tendon of his thigh flexor muscles during the training before the Cremonese match. The Belgian striker did not know about the consequences as it was the first time he was out for six months. Also, after recovering, Lukaku struggled to get back in shape and return to match rhythm. He had a terrible World Cup, but he had to travel since the stage was high. Moreover, he had to take his time before coming back to training with Inter.

Lukaku finally talked about his controversial return to Inter Milan. He wanted to clear that he has no regrets and is feeling good at Inter now. The former United striker revealed that he was not evolving as a person at Chelsea, and decided to return to Italy as his family is happy here.
