Belgian national team coach Roberto Martinez spoke to gathered reporters at the presentation of the list of players called up for the Belgium national team for their upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Russia and Cyprus, with Italian media outlet FcInterNews noting his words on Inter striker Romelu Lukaku.
“Inter want to compete for the title and they have given Romelu a goal. And when Romelu sets a goal, I don’t know anyone who’s more focused than him. He’s obsessed with victory.”
“Whether the criticism is good or bad, one thing will never change: Romelu will score. His quality as a striker is beyond question.”
“He’s grown again since he made the transition to Inter. For the first time in his career he plays with a second striker next to him. And even if he’s getting used to it, he’s already scored nine goals. He’ll never change!”
Lukaku has scored nine goals in 11 league appearances for the Nerazzurri since his arrival from Premier League side Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
