Romelu Lukaku responds to Inter Milan CEO in style after Inter Milan Master class against Porto.

inter Milan Striker Romelu Lukaku has came on to replace Eden Dzeko and backed up his substitution by a striking master class as he scores the winner against FC Porto.

To this effect, Inter Milan CEO has opened up and made a comment on the striker to which he said;

‘I have to say he has 103kg to carry around, so he needs to be in perfect physical shape to deliver and he is not there yet,’ Marotta had told Sky Sport Italia and Amazon Prime Italia pre-match.

‘He’s getting there and the coach is the best person to evaluate how he is doing and how he should be used.

‘Games tend to last almost 100 minutes nowadays, so the players who come off the bench can be just as important as what I like to call their co-starters.

‘Unfortunately, another problem with this anomalous season is the World Cup, which was midway through the first half of the campaign.

‘I can see that participation in the World Cup affected many players, some feel it more than others, and Lukaku had an injury that meant he was reduced to practically a cameo at that tournament.’

The Belgian’s instant impact also came after he was backed by Inter’s CEO to eventually make his mark at the club.

Marotta had said: ‘He is a great professional, he has so far been unfortunately unable to deliver what he wanted to.

‘But we have faith there is time for him to make an impact for the rest of the season.’

Lukaku was also delighted to have helped Simone Inzaghi’s side secure a crucial victory ahead of the second leg of the tie on March 14.

‘I put everything into that finish,’ Lukaku told Amazon Prime Italia post-match.

‘We wanted to win, we could’ve scored a second goal and were unable to do it. The important thing was to secure the victory.

‘I am not individualistic, so I focus only on trying to do what is best for Inter. I am happy for the victory, let us carry on like this.’
