‘It Was A Mistake’ – Romelu Lukaku Reflects On Return To Chelsea And Doesn’t Hold Back, as he claimed that he made a mistake by returning back.
Romelu Lukaku has acknowledged that his lavish return to Chelsea was a “mistake” and that the upcoming season will be his “greatest challenge” yet.
Just one year after leaving the Italian team for the Blues in a £98 million trade, Lukaku is back at Inter Milan.
The 29-year-old struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge, scoring just 15 goals last season in all competitions.
After scoring an incredible 64 goals in 95 appearances for Inter, he is now back where he experienced his career’s peak.
He praised the Nerazzurri and said that returning to Chelsea was a “mistake” in a scathing evaluation.
“My career’s toughest test will come during this current season. I left. A mistake was made, “During Inter’s kit launch, he remarked.
The club understands what to do, this season will be a fantastic challenge, and I’m glad to be wearing this shirt today. We need to keep playing like this.
The attacker for Belgium added: “When I was in England last season, I came to understand how significant Inter are on the global stage.
“The club’s reputation is raising on a global level, the social media strategy is crucial, and you can observe how we behave in the locker room, during practice, and with our embraces and jokes.
“Milan is a wonderful city and that is why I kept the old apartment when I went to London, because my mother was coming here all the time and I wanted to return too.”
The chances of Lukaku returning to Chelsea following his loan spell at Inter appear to be slim considering his honest reflection. There’s a chance that Inter Milan will make the deal a permanent one next summer.
It’s up to the Belgium international to prove himself in the Serie A once again, cause I don’t see Chelsea taking him back after all these.
