Belgium Coach Martinez Approves Lukaku’s Decision To Join ‘Ambitious’ Inter

Romelu Lukaku’s decision to sign for Inter was endorsed by Belgium’s head coach Roberto Martinez today.

Lukaku became his country’s all-time leading goal-scorer in 2016 and will be a crucial part of the side bidding for glory at next summer’s European Championships.

Martinez was not surprised his striker had left Manchester United and backed him to succeed under Antonio Conte in Serie A.

“His time in Manchester had simply come to an end,” Martinez told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“Lukaku needed a change of scenery and he’s found that with Inter, where he will find an ambitious club.

“I’m not worried about his move. Romelu will be playing at the same level for Inter as he was for United.”

Lukaku has not played a single preseason friendly this summer and faces a race against time to be fit for Inter’s first Serie A fixture, which will pit them against Lecce on 26 August.

The 26-year-old has been working flat out through his days off at Appiano Gentile to improve his fitness, having scored four goals in his first unofficial appearance against Virtus Bergamo on Sunday.
