Former Inter manager Andrea Stramaccioni spoke about the highly-anticipated return of Romelu Lukaku to San Siro.
A few days ahead of the big showdown between Roma and the Nerazzurri, Stramaccioni discussed the match with VoceGiallorossa.
“It will be a spectacular match,” said Stramaccioni. “Inter have regained their position on top of the table and cannot afford to lose ground. Roma, after a difficult start, have put together a series of useful results and, above all, they come from the victory against Monza which, as I say, is worth 3 and a half points.”
“We saw Mourinho’s emotion and involvement, the celebration on his knees, making clear his desire for those 3 points. In short, Roma will be very motivated. And then there will be Romelu Lukaku’s match within the match, those stories that fascinate in football. The great ex, who left on bad terms, who finds himself in his old stadium, with his former fans and former teammates. It will be a beautiful show.”
“Lukaku is an experienced footballer, captain of Belgium, he has been through a lot. He has played and scored in many countries but is also a passionate footballer. He has always confirmed his love for that team and now he is giving everything for Roma. It will be a very hot environment but he knows how to turn whistles into motivation. The pitch will do the talking, he will need Roma and his teammates.”
