The disappointment is always immense for the Red Devils, eliminated in the group stages of the World Cup. Very strongly marked after the final split against Croatia, during which he had several opportunities to offer qualification to Belgium, Romelu Lukaku made the decision to shorten his vacation in order to resume training earlier with the Inter Milan, following an injury-hit start to the season.
And his coach in the Lombard club, Simone Inzaghi, gave his news in the columns of the Gazzetta dello Sport, after the elimination of the Devils. “Lukaku was clearly disappointed, it’s a World Cup and he cares so much for his national team,” revealed Inzaghi. “But he played 45 minutes, and with him Belgium had three chances that they didn’t have in the whole game. When we have chances, a striker must be calm.
Deprived of a large part of the start of the season, as well as most of his World Cup, Lukaku will now try to really start his season with the club.
