Lukaku: ‘Conte is honest with me’

Visit: Inter striker Romelu Lukaku says he has a very “honest” rapport with coach Antonio Conte and he is relishing his new career path. Lukaku joined the Nerazzurri for €75m from Manchester United at the behest of Conte, and at a press conference before Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Russia, the 26-year old spoke of his rapport with the former Juventus and Chelsea coach. “It is a question of honesty. When things don’t go well, I want him to tell me. I am 26 and I can still improve. [Ronald] Koeman, [Jose] Mourinho and [Antonio] Conte were all honest with me and they didn’t lie to me. My relationship with Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer was also good, but I wanted to leave and I told him that in February. “Everything is good with Inter, and also with Belgium. The level of training is very high.” Asked about his incident with racism since joining Serie A, Lukaku was under no illusions as to the challenge that lies ahead. “Cagliari was a difficult moment. They had warned me before I left to go to Italy. Serie A and UEFA need to do more. You can put up a sign saying ‘no to racism’, but that isn’t enough. “I like Italy anyway, people on the street are very kind to me and my family likes it there also.” Lukaku has scored nine goals since arriving from Manchester United, equalling the start made by the Brazilian Ronaldo in 1997-98.last_img
