Romelu Lukaku spent two seasons at Manchester United before joining Inter Milan in 2019.

The striker moved to Old Trafford from Everton in 2017 when José Mourinho was managing the Red Devils.

After United parted ways with the Portuguese tactician in December 2018, they appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his successor.

The Belgium international wasn’t first choice for the Norwegian, which is why he asked to get a move away from the Premier League side.

Lukaku has been in fine form for the Nerazzurri, scoring 64 goals and contributing 16 assists since the start of the 2019/20 season.

His impressive displays have paid off as the attacker played a vital role in helping Inter win the league, and in the process, ending Juventus’ run of nine consecutive titles.

The former Chelsea man has now insisted he was right to leave Manchester United for the Serie A side.

“Things didn’t work anymore. Things have to be said as they are: if a better offer comes from somewhere else or you can try something different, why not try it? I did it and I saw that works,” Lukaku told RTBF Sport, as relayed by Calciomercato.

The frontman was also in full praise of his manager, Antonio Conte.

“He loves me because I know how to do everything he asks me to do on the pitch. I know how to attack, I know how to defend, play in the box and run into open spaces,” he explained.

“Conte is a coach who knows I’m not afraid of work; if you play for him, you must know that the work will be intense.”
