Romelu Lukaku left Manchester United for Inter Milan in the summer, just two years after he arrived at Old Trafford.

The striker was no longer a regular in the starting XI after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s successor in December.

He was subjected to criticism by a section of Manchester United fans and last month, the 26-year-old admitted he has a ‘great desire’ to silence his critics.

Alexis Sanchez also followed the Belgium international to the San Siro after the Red Devils allowed the former Arsenal man to join the Nerazzurri on loan.

Lukaku has managed two goals in first three starts, while the Chilean has been restricted to just 10 minutes of action so far.

Following Inter’s 1-1 draw against Slavia Prague in the Champions League, Lukaku told Fox Sports Chile that he and Sanchez are hopeful of putting their Manchester United woes behind them.

“I think Alexis will have his chances; we need all the players. The coach [Antonio Conte] has a plan for him and I am sure he will have a chance. He is important to us,” Lukaku explained.

“Here, for us, the situation is very different from that at Manchester United. Little by little, Alexis and I will have opportunities to play together: I hope that at that moment we will be able to make a difference.”
