APPIANO GENTILE – Romelu Lukaku reported back for pre-season training on Monday in Appiano Gentile and the Belgian striker took some time out to tell Inter TV about his summer and how hungry he is to get straight to work under new boss Simone Inzaghi.
How was your much-deserved summer holiday?
It went well. I went to New York for a few days, Miami and then the Turk and Caicos Islands with my mother and son, before heading back to Miami. I did get to relax, but I’ve also been training to stay fit and be able to start [the season] well. We now have a few weeks to prepare as well as we can for the new campaign. We hope to do well and achieve even more than last year.
We’ve seen your photo with Simone Inzaghi on social media. The new boss also coached your brother Jordan. How was your first interaction with him?
We had a good chat on the day that the club announced that he was going to be the new coach and we also spoke when I was at the Euros. My brother has also told me plenty about him. He’s a good coach. I think he’ll help the team achieve so much. We hope we can all work together to continue down the path that we’ve started.
Do you have a message for the fans?
I’m thrilled to be back. We hope to continue down the path that we’ve started and to keep winning. All the players will work hard to make your dreams come true.
