A former Inter and Juventus winger has suggested that Inter are missing Romelu Lukaku in the Champions League this season, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking during an interview with 1 Station Radio, Oscar Damiani explained that Inter’s lack of success so far this season is down to the fact they no longer have Romelu Lukaku, and that Edin Dzeko is not good enough to make the difference.
“They fail to make it in the Champions League because last year Lukaku scored in every game, while players like Dzeko and Giroud at AC Milan no longer make a difference.”
The ex-Inter man, who never actually made an appearance for the club, also explained that the Super League was a bad idea, as has been proven by FC Sheriff Tiraspol beating Real Madrid on Tuesday night in Inter’s Champions League group.
“The idea of the Super League seems to me a big mess, a game only for the rich of football.
This is demonstrated by the Sheriff’s result against Real Madrid, the latter becoming a mediocre team.
“There are always few champions, now it is a very physical game and less famous clubs are able to obtain important results.”
Inter have yet to register a win or a goal in the UEFA Champions League this season, having lost 1-0 to Real Madrid on matchday one and drawing 0-0 with Shakhtar Donetsk in Kyiv on matchday two, leaving them third in the group.
