Romelu Lukaku is enjoying the form of his life in Italy. The Belgian forward has scored 23 goals in Serie A this season. Inter milan’s manager Conte is full of praise for the Lukaku. He even insisted that the striker would also be a hit in the NFL.
The former Manchester United forward scored a brace against Genoa. However his match winning performance came against in the stoppage time.
In a post-match interview Conte said “Romelu is an atypical footballer because despite being 1.90 meters in height, he is also fast,” Conte told a news conference. He acts as a focal point but also, from the middle of the pitch, attacks like an American football player. I insisted on having him here and he can still grow with his touch and attacking the goal with malice. He is only 27 years old and if he wants to continue growing, he has an important future.”
Lukaku has become the first inter player to score 15 away goals since 1950. He scored in 6 out 9 Seria Encounters. Anotni Conte’s men are now just 5 points behind League leaders Juvesntus.
Lukaku is enjoying great form in front of goal and that too for team that has potential to win big. Lukaku in an interview said “On a personal level, I am happy,” Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia. “But I say that at the team level, we can do so much more. We have a good team, it is not easy to stay second because we want to win. But we have to go as high as possible and I want to help to do it.We have lost too many points, but we are young and we want to grow. Now we want to do well in the final matches in the league and then in the Europa League.
Inter face Napoli and Atlanta in their remaining Seri A fixture. In August the Nerazzurris will look forward to resuming their Europ League campaign against Getafe.
