‘I’m Very Glad’ To Have Lukaku At Inter, Says Conte


Antonio Conte, Inter Milan coach, has praised new signing, Romelu Lukaku, after the former Manchester United striker marked his debut for the Italian side with a goal on Monday.

Lukaku scored the third goal for Inter at San Siro in their 4-0 thrashing of newly-promoted side, Lecce.

The Belgium international, who joined the blue side of Milan in an $85 million deal this summer, scored on his home debut in the 60th minute.

Lecce goalkeeper, Gabriel, parried the ball into Lautaro Martinez’s path, allowing Lukaku to finish off.

“Romelu today showed what kind of player he is and why our club wanted to sign him,” Conte said.

“I’m very glad, I knew him as a player but not as a person, and it was a pleasant surprise.

“He dived into the reality of Inter with great humbleness, and made himself available for his team-mates.

“He’s only 26 and has huge margins of improvement, he has to keep working and make greater use of his abilities. I think that in his career he hasn’t shown all that he can do yet.”
