Lukaku’s return makes Inter title favourites

by Oviri Kelvin, Sports Editor, Abuja

Inter Milan newbie Romelu Lukaku, who recently returned to Italy after a big-money move to Chelsea last summer, has been identified as the player to bring Nerazzurri back to the glory days.

Lukaku relishing his time at the San Siro before the new season kick starts endured a tumultuous campaign last season where he managed to score 15 goals in 43 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.

Although the Belgium international was signed for a club-record fee with personal terms to make him one of the most highly paid players in Stamford Bridge, he failed to meet expectations that spurred his return to reunite with Simone Inzaghi. Recently, Massimo Rastelli, an Italian and former Cagliari head coach said the 29-yearold arrival to San Siro has made Inter Milan a favourite for the 2022-23 season Scudetto.

According to Rastelli, Lukaku is a formidable striker whose return has tilted Nerazzurri towards success in the new season. “Lukaku will shift the balance also because he already knows the league,” he said. “he’s already won here and is much-loved, even if no one expected him to leave last summer.” “He’s a formidable player and will once again be at the heart of things.

“He’ll figure out what it takes to make the difference,” added Rastelli who also coached SPAL. Inter Milan narrowly missed winning the Scudetto last season to AC Milan though it settled for the Supercoppa Italiana after defeating Juventus 2-1 in the final.
