Former Napoli coach Gianni Di Marzio feels that Romelu Lukaku must accept responsibility for the decision to leave Inter for Chelsea.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, the former coach gave the view that the Belgian’s struggles since leaving the Nerazzurri in the summer are something that he is to blame for himself.
Lukaku’s sale to Chelsea in the summer was one of the blockbuster transfers of the window, with the 28-year-old commanding the second highest transfer fee of the entire summer.
The striker had been expected to make a significant impact in the English capital after his success with Inter over two seasons, but instead he has yet to really find his feet thanks to injuries and tactical issues with the team.
In a candid recent interview with Sky Sport Italia, the Belgian admitted that he still feels significant regret about making the swtich, though for Di Marzio, he does not feel much sympathy for the player.
“Now he feels bad there because he’s not getting much playing time, and he regrets leaving the situation he had before,” he stated.
“I have little sympathy for him, he thought about it and made his decision,” the former coach continued. “He prioritized earning more money after having his career rehabilitated in Italy.”
