Inter striker Romelu Lukaku discussed the Nerazzurri’s important 4-2 derby win over rivals AC Milan in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia shortly after the game.
“We did well in the second half, in the first we left Milan too much space, they played well, congratulations to them. But we put another intensity into the second half, everything went well. I’m happy with this win.”
The 26-year-old Belgian striker then spoke about how the team are now tied on points with Juventus at the top of the league table.
“It was difficult in the first half but in the second half everyone saw Inter’s mentality of not giving up and playing until the end. I work for the team and help them win. I’m here to win, we won today and I’m happy.
“Now we are thinking about Napoli. My good feeling with Inter and Italy is thanks to the whole team, the staff and the fans. I knew it was a difficult league, thanks to them I feel good.”
The 26-year-old Belgian striker, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2024, scored the final goal against the Rossoneri in tonight’s game, securing the vital three points.
Lukaku has now scored 21 goals in 30 games across all competitions so far this season for Inter, showing why coach Antonio Conte was so desperate to bring him to Milan in the summer.
Inter are now at the top of the league table, tied on points with Juventus. The Bianconeri lost 2-1 to Hellas Verona last night, allowing both Lazio and the Nerazzurri to keep up the pressure. Only one point separates the top three teams now.
