Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed that he wishes to help Christian Eriksen as the Dane’s struggle at Inter have continued into this season.
Eriksen joined Inter in the January transfer window at the start of this year but has failed to live up to expectations in his time with the Nerazzurri which has led to a shadow being cast over his future with Inter.
“He has all the qualities to become a champion and I want to help him,” Lukaku explained in an interview with Danish television station Kanal 5 following the match last night at the King Power Stadion At Den Dreef.
“Some players need more time to adapt to Italian football, I was lucky to get used to it quickly. If he learns Italian, everything will become easier for him. He will be able to communicate better and make a greater contribution to the team.”
The former Manchester United player was then asked about Belgium’s qualification to the final four of the UEFA Nations League.
“Qualification for the Nations League final four? For me now the most important match is Sunday’s match against Torino. I’m happy with this goal, but first there is the World Cup to qualify for. We have to take one step at a time, then we’ll think about it.”
Lukaku then spoke on the tight schedule and what it means to him to be involved in the national team: “The schedule is tight, it is normal to have complaints. There were many injuries during the break but for me it’s always nice to be in the national team.”
Since joining Inter in the Summer of 2019, Lukaku has made 59 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 41 goals and tallied six assists.
