Romelu Lukaku might be one of world football’s greatest strikers but the Inter forward has not forgotten where it all started.
Before joining Anderlecht as a teenager, Lukaku spent two years developing in Lierse’s youth system alongside fellow striker Zinho Gano.
Gano, who currently plays for Kortrijk in Belgium’s top flight (on loan from Genk), gave an interview to Eleven Sports on Tuesday in which he shared his favourite memories from playing with Lukaku.
Lukaku was described during the interview as one of ‘the entertainers’ at Lierse and gave a shot-out to his former teammate on Twitter.
That’s my partner 🙏🏿💯🤞🏿 https://t.co/OBo9ilDoGK
