Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has spoken about his feelings after Inter’s failure to beat Sevilla in the final of the Europa League in 2020, stating that it had a profound effect on him and led him to feel a greater hunger for success going forward.

In an interview included in the launch of new film about the 2020-21 scudetto triumph “I M Together”, reported by FCInterNews, the Belgian striker talked about not only the effect the defeat had on him, but also what he saw reflected in his teammates after falling at the last hurdle.

Lukaku showed impressive form in the Europa League that season, scoring seven goals in his nine appearances including a penalty against Sevilla in the final, but this was not enough to lead the Nerazzurri to a continental trophy, as Sevilla triumphed 3-2 in the final.

However, the 28-year-old highlights the galvanizing effect that the loss seemed to have on Antonio Conte’s team, bringing about a newfound personal and collective maturity which saw the team improve on their second place league finish to lift the scudetto.

Lukaku explains:

“The loss to Sevilla was the most difficult moment, I think the most difficult moment of my career.”

“However, three or four days later, I woke up in the morning and told myself that we would win with this team, and that I would do everything to win.”

“In the first training session back I saw many players with incredible hunger, and from day one I said to myself: this year we do it.”
